RIP Linda Nemer

Linda Nemer and Elizabeth Bishop
It is with great sadness that we report the death on January 19, 2016, of Dona Linda Nemer, for many years the owner of Casa Mariana, Elizabeth Bishop's home in Ouro Preto. Dona Linda will long be remembered by many in the Bishop community for her generous hospitality and innumerable kindnesses. Further pictures may be found at:
