Kay Lillibridge

Today we found out that Mama’s former co-worker, Kay Lillibridge, passed away last Thursday from a blood clot in her lung–less than a week before her thirty-fourth birthday. Needless to say, this came as a huge shock, as Mama did not envision burying one of her peers anytime soon.

Kay was the co-founder of the Cornell Japanese Animation Society, then known as the Cornell Japanimation Society back in 1988, and was an active member of that organization for many years. Beyond her passionate love for Japanese animation, I knew very little else about her, except to say that she was extremely kind and loved her cat very much. Kay, you will be missed!

Update: 08/08/2003 – A memorial scholarship has been created in Kay’s name by the Saratoga Springs Public Library in New York. This scholarship will be available to individuals in Saratoga Springs or San Francisco that shared Kay’s drive, passion, and love for books. If you would like to contribute to the scholarship fund, please contact:

Kay Lillibridge Memorial Scholarship
Saratoga Springs Public Library
49 Henry Street
Saratoga Springs, New York 12866
(518) 584-7860

Our hearts go out to Kay’s surviving family; to her loving parents, Jan and John, and to her brother and friend, Mark. May we all remember Kay forever.
