Today we come together to remember Professor Elizabeth Battelle Clark, Betsy to all who knew her. We were shocked to hear of her illness, inspired by the intensity of her fight against it, and deeply saddened by her death. We have come together before to mourn her loss. Now we gather once more to celebrate our good fortune to have known Betsy and to share our remembrances of her.
