For those who don't know, I play in the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA). During my time in California, I counted this young woman as my friend. My son fought in and was her Champion (in youth combat). This spring Duchess Kolfinna ("Kitty") fought along side me and the fencers of my adopted home of "The Kingdom of Meridies" at the recent Gulf Wars event in Mississippi. Long before becoming a knight in the SCA, Sir Kolfinna got her start in martial activites on the rapier field.

In sadness,

HL John James MacCrimmon

Please cross post:

It is with deep regret and much sorrow that after getting permission
from Sven, I pass on that Duchess Kolfinna will loose her brave fight
with H1N1 today, October 1st, 2009. We all feel a great loss but
Kolfinna's family asks that her friends refrain from coming up to the
hospital. There will be a memorial at Great Western War and there will
be more information on that and final arrangements posted on the
website later http://www.kolfinna.sca-caid.org/

Thank you

Viscountess Lorissa du Griffin, OP

Chamberlain to TRMs Edward II & Mora II

King & Queen of Caid

oh, JJ, this is so hard. I don't know the lady, or her knight, but I'm reading back in his posts on her website and he had hope that she would be coming back, especially when the diagnosis was H1N1: he thought that meant it wasn't anything fatal. What a friggin' roller coaster ride.

I'm so sorry for you and for them. Awful, awful, awful.

Her Knight is likely her husband in this case, Duke Sir Sven.

JJ, I hope it's okay, I posted this info with the links to the SCA East community, as no one else had yet. (I'm not active in the SCA here, but my husband was and I know many people who are. Perhaps they should have posted instead, I don't know.)

Kitty has attended several Pennsic's so I'm sure she's well known out there.

Trust me, they aren't the only ones taking it hard.
