Former UUA Moderator Natalie Gulbrandsen has died.
Natalie Gulbrandsen, who served as moderator of the Unitarian Universalist Association from 1985 to 1993, died today. Gulbrandsen also volunteered extensively with the UU Women's Federation, the International Association for Religious Freedom, the Partner Church Council, and her congregation in Wellesley Hills, Mass. I'll update this entry with links to obituaries, memorials, and additional material about her as I come across them.
Update 10.19.07: William F. Schulz, who served as UUA president when Gulbrandsen was moderator, writes an appreciation of her life and work for UUA.org. Here's the funeral home's obituary and announcement of a memorial service Saturday, November 10, 2007, at 10:30 AM at the Unitarian Universalist Society of Wellesley Hills.
Update 10.21.07: This brief notice appears in today's Boston Globe.
Update 11.29.07: A full obituary ran in the November 13 Boston Globe: "Natalie W. Gulbrandsen; helped Scouts, battled nuclear tests".
