ToneDeafDave Obit: Helen Schneyer, (1921-2005) (82* d) RE: Obit: Helen Schneyer, July 16, 2005 17 Jul 05


I was lucky enough to visit Helen a couple of times in Vermont - and once she visited me during my sojourn in London, and of course I was somewhere in the crowd around whenever I attended any festival or activity where she was. I am amazed now at the strenth of the impact those few contacts made on me. She filled the room, she filled the stage, she filled her own life and the lives of those around her.

I think it says a lot that no one in this thread spoke much about her age, or gave a hint of that mealy mouthed "well she had a good run" kind of talk that sometimes comes out when someone in their eighties departs. She was ageless, and she was a great performer who, as great performers do, has walked off the stage leaving us all wanting more...
