voguevixen has died

I don't think she'd been around here too much recently, but I know a lot of old-timers will remember her. This announcement was posted by a friend on her Facebook wall this morning:

Quote:
Dear Facebook friends, voguevixen passed away peacefully last night. She was with her husband Bruce and two of their cats. Thank you for all of your support and well wishes for Betsy-it meant a lot to her. I am posting this with Bruce's permission to inform her Facebook friends since we cannot access her Facebook account.
The information I have from her friend is that she had been sick with liver/kidney failure, and had decided to stop dialysis treatment. So sad to lose any of our community, and especially one so young--she was only 43. RIP, vogue.

A sad day.
Peace upon her soul and may she teach us in all of our short lives here the values we all cherish,

Ditto. I don't recall any interaction with her, but it doesn't matter. That she will never post again is sad.

My condolences. I've reported this thread so her name can added to the SDMB Memorial thread..

Yeah, I checked her profile, and the last time she posted was almost a year ago. She was one of the '99ers, though.

I'm so sad to read this -- she was one of our earliest Dopers; I think she was around during the AOL days as well. My condolences to her family and friends.

I don't know that I ever interacted with her, but one thing's for sure, 43 really is too young. Sympathies to her husband and all who loved her.

Condolences to her husband and family. 43 is way, way too young. I remember her well from the early days. I believe she was in #straightdopechat on mIRC a lot, too, way back in the early Naughties. Good times.

Like VV, I don't post much as of late. Seems like the only times I come out of semi-dopertirement is to participate in an in memoriam. Will you guys stop dying already? It's freaking me out.

(Place smilie there if you need it - I'll forgo the use of something that bright in this thread.)

Sad to hear when any of our member pass away. I do remember her, probably because of the alliterative and clever name, if not for any conversations with her.

I don't think I ever interacted with her, but I remember she was a Bieber fan. As far as I'm concerned, if you're brave enough to admit you like Bieber around here, you've got guts. I admired her for that.

I remember her. She was local to the bay area, wasn't she? She'd often have something to contribute that was specific to this area so I took care to read her posts.

She was too young.

I managed to track down her real name and Facebook account.

She posted on December 26 that her "body decided to kick my liver and kidney's [sic] to the curb."

Although she seemed to be on the mend.

I remember her well. I know her posts made me laugh actually out loud more than once. She'll be missed. 43? That's just not fair. Condolences to Bruce.
