the new service - did she somehow become in need of that service herself? or would that service have prevented her death?

is it a service that others now offer? was she the first to do so?
did the service involve new technology? 'supernatural' powers?

regarding education: subject matter relevant?

if so, what educational level?: preschool? primary/elementary? secondary(junior high/high school)? college/university? Specialized instruction? math-related? science-related?literature/language? music?

was the education in a, shall i say, less socially acceptable arena?

*glances through a list of famous deaths in 1995*

-Dorothy McHugh, actress (I Fallen and I Can't Get Up), dies at 87

Was it her? She certainly won't be getting up anytime soon.

*wishes she could edit her last post*
Ok, found an even better one:
- Molly Harris, actress/writer (Immortal), dies at 82

I can see the headline now... 'Immortal' author dies.

Ack...
Literature...
Books? Movies? Plays? TV? Website? Flyers? Other? Is literature even the best description?

Was she even the author? Was she just the publisher? Or perhaps the muse/inspiration? Other(similar category)?

Man... only famous person I know who died in 1995 is Elisabeth Montgomery from Bewitched. But she didn't do anything literature related...
or so I think.
