Thought I’d share this bit of shocking news here.
Pasted from the American Tarantula Society Forums
Post by Stan Schultz, co-author of the Tarantula Keeper’s Guide, the best book on the market by far !
One and All -
It is with great sadness that I must report that my wife, Marguerite Schultz, passed away this morning of pneumonia.
To the world she was known as the “Tarantula Lady,” or the “Grande Dame” of tarantulas. She is best known as co-author of The Tarantula Keeper’s Guide, and was responsible for personally introducing literally thousands of people to these incredible animals and the tarantula keeping hobby.
She is survived by her husband, Stanley (Stan) Schultz, and a passel of grand children, great-grand children and even a sprinkling of great-great-grand children too large to enumerate here, plus untold numbers of friends around the globe.
Please note that we do not accept E-greeting cards and would prefer receiving simple condolences in these threads instead.
Those wishing to do to so, may make donations to the American Tarantula Society in Marguerite’s name instead of sending flowers or greeting cards.
She will be missed by all.
