Jeanne Lynn Hall, Associate Professor of Film-Video and Media Studies at the Pennsylvania State University, passed away December 23, 2011. She had just turned 53. Jeanne was a long-time member of the UDC. She organized both UDC conferences held in State College in 2002 and 2010. She worked very hard to make them a site for us all to come together and share in struggle for social justice and peace. Her personal touches on the conferences included customized folders for members that were especially dear to her. She worked hard on every program manually designing them with her extraordinary artistic talent. Those of you who knew her were fortunate to experience her energy, enthusiasm, warmth and love. Those of you who never met Jeanne might not realize how committed she was to the UDC and her impact in shaping what it is today.
