For more than thirty years, at conventions across the US and in several other countries, she did a panel with old time fan Rusty Hevelin called “How to Enjoy Your First Convention.” In 2011 she was given the Big Heart Award at the World SF Convention in Reno, NV. She's been going to SF conventions since 1963 (so has Joe) and loves to meet new people. After 52 years of marriage, she still thinks Joe's the best thing that ever happened to her.
