More about Elyse White

From Canada
While the news was not unexpected, it saddens us greatly.  Elyse White was such an inspiration to us from the time we first met her during our first ATA Congress experience in Benin. She continued to be in our hearts throughout the years. when we looked forward to the many welcome letters received from "Mama Safari" and the opportunity to visit her at her home in Harlem, whenever we were in the  New York area. We were her house guests on several occasions.
A beacon of light and a shining example for many in ATA, Elyse is with the angels, joining other stalwarts of the Africa Travel Association we have had the pleasure of knowing and loving.
With deepest regrets, Jerry and Muguette,

Dear Carol,. Esther and I were privileged to have met your mother during the ATA's cultural and ecotourism symposium in Kampala. She was a true inspiration and a wonderful source of information, almost an encyclopedia if you allow me to put it this way, having travelled to literally every ATA event. We are very sad to hear that she has now passed on.Please accept our sincere condolences and deepest sympathy, to you, your entire family and all the friends of Elyse.

Dear Eddie, Nathalie, Jerry, Muguette, I wanted to let you know that our beloved Elyse White passed away last night at 6:00 PM after a brief illness.  She was 99 years old and would have been 100 in October of this year.  As you know, Elyse White was one of the founding members of ATA and a long-time member.  The last ATA event she attended was the ATA Ecotourism Symposium held in Uganda.  Up until that time, she had attended every ATA Congress and Ecotourism Symposium in the organization's history.  Her daughter, Carol, will be planning a memorial service at a later date.  In the meantime, I thought that the team at ATA would want to know.  Condolences can be sent to Elyse's daughter as follows: Carol White, 80 LaSalle, New York, NY 10027

Ogo, Please pass on to Carol White regarding her magnificent mother who was an inspiration to us all.  She has always been my heroine. She has inspired me and gave me hope that I too can travel into my 90's as she did.  She was youthful to the very end.  May she rest in peace.
