In Memoriam: Vera Ross

Honorary member, Vera Ross, passed away on March 9th, 2022.  The Calgary Women’s Literary Club was one of many organizations to benefit from Vera’s talent and enthusiasm.  She joined the club in 1996 and soon joined the Executive, serving as Program Chair, Vice President, and President.  She became an Honorary member in 2014.

Although I didn’t know Vera, I would have enjoyed her many presentations including The Poetry of Yeats, Women in Literature as portrayed by Shakespeare, Pierre Berton, Simone de Beauvoir, Ian McEwan and others. Her love for literature is reflected in the wide range of authors and topics that she chose to present.   She will be missed.

On behalf of CWLC, Robin S.

  1. Thanks Robin for your comments on Vera. I knew her years ago at University Women’s Club and would certainly have enjoyed her CWLC presentations especially on Shakespeare’s women as she would have been thorough, insightful and always critical.
