RIP, Maria Leavey

Sad news arrived while I was gone, the passing of Maria Leavey. I imagine few people reading have heard her name. I only met her a few times, and mostly knew her through email and some conference calls. Honestly, to this day, I never really knew who, if anyone, Maria worked for. All I knew was that she was always working, doing important work that no one else seemed to be doing, trying to fill the gaps that never seemed to get filled on their own. She did a lot, and she just... well, did it. She will be missed, and probably in many more ways and by many more people than I can begin to know.
