Fans Remember Shona

[1992]: Shona Jackson died at the age of 40 from cancer. Shona had been with the KSF in two different terms, having left us for a year. In all, she served with the Strike Force for about three years. Shona had been a fan of Star Trek and of course, Klingons, for so many years, only the Stars would know for sure. She contributed her artwork and her comments to many publications. If you look in the right places, you can still find her Klingon costume artwork in various publications, some official and some fan produced. Shona always spoke her mind and was an activist in many things. She wrote many and helped structure some of the KSF. Her input to the greater glory has been missed. [1]
[2013]: Back in the seventies, a fierce young woman joined a Star Trek club I ran via the mail. Her name was Shona Jackson. She was fierce. Fierce in her interests, her pursuit of them, her beliefs, her passion for life. In the eighties [2], Shona died, way too early.[3]
