Christine Robinson Franquemont, 1948-2013

It is with tremendous sorrow that I must formally announce the death of my mother, Dr. Christine Robinson Franquemont.

Having traveled to Cusco, Peru to attend the 2013 Tinkuy de Tejedores at the Center for Traditional Textiles of Cusco, Chris arrived Monday, November 11, and spent time visiting with close friends and family and preparing for her role in the Tinkuy event. On Tuesday morning, November 12, 2013, Chris was found dead of natural causes in her hotel.

Funeral and memorial plans are being made, but are not ready to be released at this time. I will tell everyone more as I am able.

I miss you, Chris. I can’t believe you’re gone.
