The Saddest News About Joan Winston

I'm posting this on Sunday the 14th -- with news of what happened on 9/11/2008.

We have sadly lost one of the Greats of Star Trek fandom, Joan Winston.

Notice appears on Gene Roddenberry's page on -- she would be so pleased.

Here is a different notice from one of her relatives:
It's with great sorrow that I share with you the news of the passing of Joan Winston earlier today. She was a wonderful and crazy woman that brought joy to many who shall remain with us as long as the conventions go on.

Services will be held Sunday September 14th, 2008 at the Plaza Funeral Home located at 630 Amsterdam Avenue in Manhattan at 9:30am. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to The Hebrew Home for the Aged at Riverdale located at 5901 Palisade AvenueBronx , NY 10471 (718) 581-1417 (phone) who cared for her in her final months. Please feel free to pass along this information as you feel appropriate.

Please remember, I'm never too busy for your referrals.

The online New York Times obituary for Joan Winston can be found here..... And they have a Guest Book but I don't know how long it will be up or open.


You can contribute remembrances and tributes to the Joan Winston page and memorial at which is growing rapidly.
