RIP Carol Porteous-Fall

Carol Porteous-Fall, a longtime East Village resident, eco-activist and yoga enthusiast, died on July 20 after being diagnosed with leukemia in the spring.

An online memorial service is set for tomorrow, Saturday, Aug. 1 at 3 p.m. You may find the memorial tomorrow at this link.

A GoFundMe campaign that was established by her friends in the spring is now being used to settle her estate and provide her son Lateef with some aid.

Carol had been a friend to this site, and contributed on occasion.

She wrote this about herself on LinkedIn:

I’m excited about music, yoga, psychology, social justice, dancing, reading, watching, community gardens, cultures, riding my bike around the city, and more ... just by experiencing life from various vantage points, really, and getting to know all kinds of people.

Very sad. A very kind and caring person. There but for the grace of God. Too soon. Too quickly.

Carol had a bottomless verve and creativity for social justice. And she was funny! Still shocked she’s gone.
