Betty Salmon (1924-2015) passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday 17 March, aged 91 years.

She was an artist, musician, singer, spiritual teacher, mentor, friend.

Inspiring, energetic and very wise. She participated in tai chi, yoga, tennis, croquet and art. She was the head of the Cape Town branch of the Academy for Future Science and travelled extensively.

We are all very blessed and grateful that she shared her life with us and will miss her enormously.
