In memoriam Gloria Taylor

Gloria Taylor of Westbank, BC, Canada died on October 4, 2012.  Diagnosed in 2009 with ALS—a fatal degenerative disease, Gloria died suddenly and unexpectedly in Kelowna General Hospital, due to an infection.  Gloria will be remembered for her courageous participation in a landmark constitutional court case for the right to die with the assistance of a doctor.  She won a special right to receive court authorization for either physician assisted suicide or euthanasia.
