Share a Story - Change the World
The storytelling world and especially those of us at Professional Storyteller are numb with surprise and grief over the loss of Dianne de Las Casas to a house fire on August 21. Dianne founded this site and worked with us to keep it going after Don “Buck P.” Creacy became the new site owner, keeping it running in early 2012.
The following newspaper article in the New Orleans Times-Picayune gives details as they were known on the day following her death. As the article quotes her daughter, Soleil, about Dianne, (she) “would want people to celebrate her life.” While we have a Memorial status and page on P.S. for members here who have died, Dianne's long-time devotion to our network calls for special attention. Please help us celebrate her life by sending in your favorite remembrances of her to ProfessionalStoryteller.ning.com and we will share it with her daughters, Soleil and Eliana. There will be a blog post on Professional Storyteller titled Death of Professional Storyteller (network) Founder, Dianne de Las Casas and we will send it to her daughters and later add it to her page here.
