Many of us in Michigan are mourning the loss of Nancy Jones-Keiser, who passed away on Monday, September 28th 2009.
Nancy was a longtime activist and educator, and an organic farmer who worked tirelessly and selflessly to promote local and organic food and farming, natural health, and democracy – often with her husband Paul Keiser. Her contributions to the movement were extraordinary, and she was a wonderful woman of great intelligence, compassion, and spirit.
She was also a personal friend to both of us here at beginningfarmers.org, with whom we had the pleasure of working closely for a number of years on the Michigan Organic Food and Farm Alliance Board of Directors.

Jim and I are deeply saddened by her loss, and we will both miss her very much. We offer our heartfelt condolences to her family and her friends.
Sincerely, respectfully, and with a heavy heart,
