Ruth Frappell, Obituary

Dear friends,

It is with great sadness that I am writing to let you know of the death of Ruth Frappell at the age of 69. Ruth passed away on Sunday 31 July at the Sydney Adventist Hospital after a short illness.

Ruth was one of the strongest long-term supporters of the Journal of Religious History Association and played a key role in the negotiations which led to the foundation of the Religious History Association at the beginning of 2010. In 2011 she was made a Life Fellow of the Association in recognition of her services to religious history in Australia.

We will remember her fondly and with the deepest respect for her scholarship and contribution to our discipline.
