Juri Nummelin brought her son's Facebook post, from last night, to the attention of Rara-Avis members today.

Hello everyone, this is Karin's son Erik here.
It is with great sadness that I have to inform you of her passing this evening.
After 2 brave years of fighting cancer, she passed away with Jim, Zoé and me at her side.
More information will be shared at the appropriate time.

She was a consistently gracious and witty contributor to the RA discussion, and elsewhere, as a notable Quebec-based French to English translator, a writer of her own work, and fan of CF and more.

Her remembrance of Bill Crider remains one of the most popular posts on my blog:

Her last post on Rara-Avis involved the one Rara-Avis meet-up, at a Bouchercon bar, in 2003.
