NW COACH VERA SHADDUCK PASSES AWAY

Most of you have probably heard of Vera's passing. I will be receiving more information on Vera's passing but, until then, I would like to bring you this Facebook post that was posted by Dorothy Cates.
I will be also posting the article on our NW Memorial Site

VERA SHADDUCK BY DOROTHY CATES

I am incredibly sad to share with everyone that Vera passed away last night at 10:27 pm. Her daughter, Kinda, was with her. She put up a good fight, as we all knew she would.

Vera was an amazing woman. She was a teacher, a skating coach, a friend, a mother, and a grandmother. She was a great force in the roller skating community, and her experience and knowledge will be greatly missed. And I know we will all miss her friendship and humor.

Personally, Vera gave so much to me. She taught me to work hard and not take crap from anybody. She helped me develop a sense of independence, an appreciation for the world and everything in it, how to read a map and find my way any where, and FUN. We had so much fun when we traveled. But most of all, she gave me love. She loved me like I was her own. I am proud to be #4, Vera.

We all love you and will miss you greatly.

-Dorothy Cates

OUR NORTHWEST GOLD MEDALISTS RECOGNITION SITE----


Northwest Gold Medalist Archives lists skaters from the Northwest
who deserve recognition for passing the highest test in skating, the Gold Medal.

Please visit the following link:

It is my opinion that reaching the Gold Medal goal is to be congratulated and those skaters should be remembered for this
just as champions are remembered. This is not a complete list of Gold Medal skaters at this point. I will add to this as I receive confirmation on others.
These tests results have been recorded in a book put out by the RSROA for the years 1946-1983, and from Skate Magazines.
I am trying to get the test records from 1984-present from the RSA office. This is not an easy task as you can imagine.
When looking for the skaters, I have them listed both by the year and alphabetically.
Remember the ladies may have different last names since they took the test. Any information on the married or maiden names would be appreciated. I have tried to post those in brackets.
Thank you Hazel Inman for helping me with the research.
