March 5, 2013: Phyllis Opolko
We are grieved to report that our friend Phyllis Opolko passed away yesterday.
Phyllis was a Senior Marketing Manager at Diamond Comic Distributors and Alliance Games. She was instrumental in much of our work marketing to (and outside of!) the hobby game industry. My own dealings with her were always positive and frequently instructive. I was richer for knowing her and am poorer now that she is gone. Knowing that she was working through pain the entire time inspires me even more.
SJ Games sends our condolences to her loved ones, and most especially to her colleagues at Alliance, who have lost not just a colleague and mentor, but a dear friend as well.
