Our Sierra Nevada Chapter (SNC) Board of SLA is very sad to inform our SNC membership and very good friends that our SNC President, Coral Henning, passed away Thursday, March 28, 2019.
Coral was a delight to work with and, when she found out that our SLA chapter was in danger of closing down due to lack of a President, she very kindly agreed to serve this year. She was just that way! We have had many joint SNC/NOCALL December Holiday Gatherings with Coral as the planner on the NOCALL side. No-one else had such a beautiful boisterous laugh or such a cheerful outlook. I enjoyed co-planning with Coral for a couple of these holiday gatherings – her suggestions for locations were always intriguing and we had such fun planning the menu selections.
Coral also made the recommendation that the SNC Board have our meetings at the Sacramento County Public Law Library which proved to be a very nice central location for Board members who are from all around the Sacramento region.
Coral served as Publicity Chair for SLA Sierra Nevada Chapter in 2005-2006. She frequently suggested that NOCALL and SNC collaborate on events and workshops together. Many folks recall the harness racing networking joint event – a first for this type of SLA networking event! The legal workshop for non-legal researchers in May 2015 at Sacramento Public Law Library was particularly well attended.
Coral was such a generous and talented colleague. We will all miss our fellow Sierra Nevada Board member and friend, Coral Henning.
