3:30 PM - 6:30 PM
On Sunday September 1st, from 3:30 to 6:30 there will be a memorial for Brita Windwalker. Light refreshments will be served.
Brita Windwalker, 68, passed away Friday, March 29th, 2019. She was born on Imbolc in 1951; her mother, who had been involved in Theosophy, had her baptized by fire (incense smoke) so the Lutheran baptism wouldn't "take". She married Hugh Windwalker on September 22, 1973; they were initiated together in a Lammas circle in 1975 and they were later handfasted.
Starting at Imbolc in 1982 and for over 20 years, Brita and Hugh published the Hidden Path (a Gardnerian newsletter) with two members of their coven and later, published Converging Paths, a more general Pagan newsletter. Brita was HPS of Windwalker Coven in Illinois and Sparrowhawk Coven in Wisconsin; many Gardnerians in Minneapolis sprang from those covens and she has spiritual descendants as far away as Florida. Brita was also active for many years in The Earth Conclave; many others active in that organization are from the Minneapolis area.
She is survived by her spouse Hugh, two sisters and a brother-in-law, her three children and four grandchildren. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her name to Planned Parenthood, Kiva.org, Kindred Kitties or other no kill shelters, or your local school programs.
