Judith Brownlee was a fan writer and zine publisher in the Science Fiction and Star Trek fandom active in the 1970s. She chaired MiniCon III, the predecessor of MileHiCon, on October 16, 1971,[2] and MileHiCon years 3 through 8.

Judith passed away on February 2, 2012.[3] The Denver Area Science Fiction Association (DASFA) remembers her:

As many of you have heard, Judith Brownlee passed away recently.

Basically a founding member of DASFA (I believe she showed up at the second meeting), Judith was instrumental in the early days of the club, serving both as director and editor at various times, as well as hosting numerous parties. She also chaired (or co-chaired with Ted Peak) MileHiCon years 3 through 8 as we were getting established. Judith was also a founding member of the local SCA Barony and the first Baroness. The last few years she came to MileHiCon as a dealer, selling some of the accumulated SF/F/H books and memorabilia from her years as a fan. I attended her memorial on Sunday. There were around 130 people there, from her various circles: science fiction, the SCA, pagan. A number of those there were from the early days of DASFA and the barony … as one friend observed, “Looking around, you can tell we’re all getting older.” Well, yes, when you’ve known someone for over 40 years (as I had known Judith) everyone is older. I will miss her. Blessed be.

Yours in fandom,
