The Rotary eClub of the Southwest USA lost one of our cherished members last Monday, March 19, after a short stay in hospice care.  Frances De Nuit was an educator who earned her MA at California State University-San Bernardino and her PhD at University of Southern California.  Prior to becoming Faculty Supervisor at the University of Phoenix in Albuquerque, NM in February 2015, Frances taught Language Arts at Española Valley High School in northern New Mexico.

Frances became a Rotarian in September 1994 when she joined the Rotary Club of Indian Wells, California, US.  While she relocated many times her career, Frances found a new Rotary home.  In July 2010, she joined ReCSWUSA.  As an educator, she shared her time, treasury, and talents in service with the Club.  Aside from serving in multiple board roles, she opened her home for gatherings of local eClubbers.  She was a consistent friend and mentor to her fellow members.  Her compassion, intellect, positive attitude, and skilled listener will be missed.  Please keep her family and friends in your thoughts and prayers.
