We received this from the Northwest Dharma Association:

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Genko Kathy Blackman on December 9, 2022. We will hold a memorial for Genko on January 28 at the Puget Sound Zen Center. It will streamed on Zoom, with the Zoom address on our homepage and the same password as we usually use. If you need that password, email PSZC.
There will be a second memorial at Nalandabodhi in Seattle at a later date.
