It is with a sad heart that we write about Mrs. Eileen Coly, past president of the Parapsychology Foundation (PF), who passed away on November 18, 2013, after a long service to the field of parapsychology. We first met her during a Parapsychological Association convention in the mid-1980s, and got to know her a little bit better in 1986 when we stopped off to visit the PF, were ushered into her office, basked under her meaningful smile, and were both pleased and startled when she said “We’ve been watching you two.” But we really got to know her during 2000 to 2003 when we worked for the PF in New York City. Many are the memories we have of her personality: She was charming but serious, a woman with a biting and intelligent sense of humor and an enormous amount of spunk that not everyone in the field got to see.
