March 21 - St. Serapion, sad news

For more on today's fourth century saint, see Saint-a-Day.

I read today in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that one of our Oral History participants, Anita Doggendorf, passed away on Sunday, March 19. My condolences to Doggie and the whole family.

Anita was a fun person and her interview with Earl (Doggie) from June 21, 2005 is located in our Oral History section.

Here is the information from the Post below.
