Cherisse Luxa, 1947-2009
Over at Daily Kos, Cherisse's friend cafecito writes:
If you have ever attended Drinking Liberally, you almost certainly know of Cherisse’s incredible energy and her unstoppable drive to make our community a better place. From her decades as a King County Sheriff’s Deputy to her impressive track record as an activist an advocate, Cherisse made a huge difference, both for Burien and for the broader community.Here's to a pioneering netroots activist, Cherisse Luxa. May she rest in peace. We'll always be grateful for the work she did to make our state a better place to live.
Cherisse, like many of us, got religion with Howard Dean's run.
Cherisse touched thousands of lives and was a role model for many of us. We will sorely miss her.
