The members of the Anthropology department were saddened to learn of the passing of one of its most distinguished and productive retired members, Dorothy Counts. The following obituary nicely captures what an extraordinary life she lived:

Dorothy Ellen Ayers Counts
08 January 1937 – 27 October 2018

Dorothy came into this world on 08 January 1937 in San Antonio, Texas, and departed on 27 October 2018 in Victoria, British Columbia after a prolonged struggle with Alzheimer’s. She made the transition easily and peacefully surrounded by the love of her family.
