From Catherine Hunter
Siobhan was such a lovely lady. We drove together to the stepping down of Dirk and Chamayn on their last court. She and I had so much fun just chatting and stuff on the way up there. She will be greatly missed as she was very active in Calafia. Rest in peace.
From Tanikawa no Reishi
Siobhan was a very kind and giving lady. We spent several afternoons wandering around San Diego just having fun. I remember dragging her along a series of bus rides to get to Mitsuwa and these other random Japanese stores in that area. I gave her her first taste of Ramune, melon flavored. She loved it, "it's a bit like ice cream soda," she said. We had some mini ice-creams and wandered into Book Off. We watched a lot of movies together. And the shyest cat she had decided I'd make a good friend and would walk up to me and let me pet her. She was a fluffy Siamese cat. Sioban was astounded. Quite randomly, Sioban thought I needed more garb and she gave me this lovely blue dress with mauve and white trim. She kept trying to give me garb, "I've got this old kimono somewhere..." and I kept refusing; I didn't have anything as equally wonderful to give her in return. Before I went back to the East for a while, I'd painted for her a Four Elements plate. I can only hope that she spends some time as one of her favorite creatures, a Dragon Fly, for a while, before she comes back to us.
From Rekon of Saaremaa
Siobhan graciously invited me and my teenaged son to stay with her when we went to our first Comic-Con. She had never met us and had no other reason to let us in than that we were members of the Society who needed a place to sleep. She was kind, her home was beautiful, and she had a gentle love for the world about her that was charming. I am sorry for her going, but glad to have met her, and I will always hold her memory dear.
From Ellyn of Tanwayour
Siobhan was one of the reasons I got so deeply involved in the SCA after joining. She carpooled to events with me, mentored me in event steward secrets, and encouraged me to try all sorts of things out that I probably would not have tried. Things such as calligraphy, illumination, lace making, and exploring Viking and Celtic cultures. She was very welcoming to Euginia in rauða who went on to serve four years as Calafia’s Arts & Sciences Officer, and who was instrumental in establishing Calafia’s Viking Guild. I believe it was because of Siobhan that I felt comfortable volunteering, which put me on the path to being asked to join the Order of the Pelican.
