It has come to our attention that we are rapidly losing members of our community, friends and supporters of ACB. In order to honor these people whose lives have impacted us, in large and small ways, we are introducing this column, "Passings." In it, we will include brief obituaries of those who have passed away. See below for the format in which to submit information.

Josephine Ujejski Price, age 91, passed away March 2, 2008. She spent 27 years as a rehabilitation teacher for the state of Indiana, working with people in their homes. After her retirement, she worked as a volunteer at the Resource and Information Center which was operated by the Circle City Chapter of the American Council of the Blind of Indiana.

She was also active for many years in the alumni association of the Indiana School for the Blind, where she graduated in 1937. Jo was an avid knitter and taught knitting, including at the national conventions on occasion. She lived a long and full life and was vitally interested in everything right to the end. May she rest in peace.
