It is with sadness that we relate the passing of Patricia Donegan, in her native Chicago, on 24 January 2023, following a short but onerous illness brought on by an allergic reaction to medication. Donegan served The Haiku Foundation as an Associate, as well as a judge in its HaikuNow! Contests. She was a champion of women haiku poets in Japan and around the world, and was, of course, a world-class poet herself. A Sukhavati will be held Friday, 27 January 2023, at 7:00 pm CST. A Zoom link for those wishing to attend from a distance will be made available.
