Mil Plant Sept2015Just received from Valerie Murray:

Yesterday Mil Plant passed away peacefully in her sleep, in her special cozy cabin, surrounded by family. For the past few years Mil has been living in Clark, near Steamboat Springs, next to her daughter Barb's home. Mil (and of course Jim) will be remembered by many of us, both old and young, for all they did for orienteering from the very early years in New England, and later here in the high country.

There will be a family gathering this coming Saturday in Frisco at 2 pm at the Plant home there. Friends are welcome.

Your memories of Mil Plant would be very much appreciated ..... send them along to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., and I will put them together and forward a collection to the family.

Area orienteers from the 1980s will remember Mil, and her husband Jim. She won the Women's 55+ class for NEOC at the 1985 U.S. Championships.
