'MrsGaskell lost her battle with ovarian cancer in April 2012.   She had been a member since 2005.  I'll let her friend Gypsysmom share more.

"She had been battling ovarian cancer for a couple of years going through surgery and chemo but smiling and reading all the time. On April 15 she lost that battle and BookCrossing lost a lovely person. She was the first person to catch one of my wild-released books and we became friends thereafter. We had very similar tastes in books and traded a lot of books back and forth. She was very active on the Books forum and started the SIY (Set It Yourself)  quarterly challenges which are still carrying on.

I miss her almost every day."
