death of a wonderful FOSS community member 

Marina Zhurakhinsakaya, beloved community member and enormous force behind Outreachy, died of cancer over the weekend.

It feels impossible to believe. Marina has always been one of the best, most positive, hardworking for good people I've met in FOSS or anywhere.

Lots of people in tech want to be known for "changing the world". But Marina really did change peoples' lives for the better.

@cwebber she sounds like a wonderful person. What a sad loss for her family and the community :(
