    Mary was two years ahead of me as an undergraduate, although we did know each other in passing. Later we attended Gonzaga Law School together. Mary was always a kind and helpful person.

    Her are some words from Gonzaga President Thayne McCulloh :

    "It is with deep sadness that I share with you the passing of dear friend, loyal supporter, and distinguished Gonzaga alumna, The Honorable Mary Fairhurst (‘79, J.D. ’84). Mary was able to share her final moments with her family and loved ones before she passed, yesterday evening, at her home in Olympia."

      Boston Celtics and NBA legend Sam Jones, age 88, passed on Friday, December 31. Jones died of natural causes, per a Celtics team spokesperson.

      Jones played in the NBA for 12 years, all with the Celtics. In those 12 years, Jones was a part of 10 championship teams. Jones also made five All-Star teams. Jones 10 titles are second-most in NBA history, behind Boston teammate Bill Russell’s 11 championships.

      The Celtics drafted Jones with the eighth overall pick at the 1957 NBA Draft. Celtics coach Red Auerbach drafted Jones, despite never having seen him play. While on a scouting trip to North Carolina, Auerbach was told “You can visit Chapel Hill (home of the University of North Carolina), but the best player in the state is a few miles away.”
      In 1984, Jones was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. He was also one of a handful of players named to the NBA’s 25th, 50th and 75th anniversary teams.

              I really hope that the 2022 “notable passages” thread stays well short of ten pages and 230 posts.
