It is with great sadness that we must report the death of Mrs. Mary Goffart (née Parent) who passed away on October 5, 2015.  She had been a stalwart member of the Society since its very beginning, becoming a founding member and regularly attending its meetings until ill health and restricted mobility made it impossible for her to continue.  She not only became a life member of the society, but later took out a second life membership on the presumed shorter life span of the ancient Mesopotamians. Born in Presquisle, Maine, in 1928 she received   a BA from Regis College in Boston and a MA from the University of   Toronto. Her interest in ancient Mesopotamia arose out of her travels   in Syria, Iran, and Turkey. Our sincere condolences go to her husband Lionel.
