Remembering Glenn Scott, Loreto Espinoza, and Susan Duncan, sisters in solidarity.

AUSTIN — In a short span of time three women I greatly admired passed from this life to the next. Susan (Sue) Duncan passed away in August of 2017, Loreto Encina Espinoza in August 2018, and Glenn Scott just days ago. Breast cancer finally took these strong women down.
They were all major influences in my life, examples of how to live a life and how to blend family and friendships with activism. I have a picture from 2005 (above). Eight of us are gathered at the home of Renato and Loreto Espinoza. Sue is in that picture and so is Glenn. Renato, Loreto and my mother-in-law, who had been a doctor in Chile, are all there. Only three of the eight, Cam Duncan, Carlos Lowry and I are still living. We were all participants in solidarity work after the military coup of September 11, 1973, overthrew Salvador Allende’s socialist government in Chile.
