It is with great sadness to report that AGS member and past president (2009-10) Ann Molineux passed away February 12, 2018. Ann was a fantastic geologist and long-time contributor to AGS field trips among many other geoscientific activities. A truly dynamic, engaging, and lovely person and scientist that will be missed.
