R.I.P., Doris Femenella

When you cover politics for a long time, you meet all kinds of activists, some more memorable than others.

I will never forget Doris Femenella, one of the kindest, sweetest people I had the good frotune to meet and married to her firebrand of a husband, Bob. I met them when I first started covering politics in Nevada 26 years ago, and we immediately took a liking to each other.

Doris was not a great source -- it wasn't that kind of relationship. We were friends. But Doris was a great person, the best kind of activist who really believes in things and approached her participation with passion.

Sadly, Doris passed away this week at the age of 86. I will miss her.

Details of her life are inĀ this obit and I have attached here the story of her life that Bob provided.
