Carol Elizabeth Cox died during the 2007 Christmas season from pneumonia. It is a loss to her family, to BFB, and to blonde rights. She worked at BFB for six years, and many years before that on her own, advocating blonde rights and fair treatment against stereotypes. Over that time many others came and went, but her dedication only grew.
On Dec 22 Carol felt ill and went to a clinic
where they said she had the flu and sent her home. A few hours
later she worsened and her family brought her to emergency, where
she was admitted to hospital.
Carols' memorial service was held on Sunday January 6th in Burnaby British Columbia. She was cremated.
Carol was dedicated to Blonde Rights before
I met her, and had made real headway toward changing attitudes.
In the six years she was here at BFB she spoke to governors,
bureaucrats, newspapers radio stations and forums. She also made
complaints to government bodies over portrayal of us in the media.
Her hundreds of emails and discussions were honing her skills
and I believe she was going to become a well known spokeperson
for blonde rights and fair treatment.
Someone once said "if you can't be a
zealot for your own cause, then who else would be?" She
took that to heart and often confronted the fakes in restaurants
or on the streets, calling them dye-job skanks and other truthful
descriptions. She enjoyed their displeasure, and was always testing
her own bravery.
Carol was also a talented painter. She had
hundreds in various medias. She had galley showings, but often
didn't like to sell them, yet sometimes gave them away. She also
loved gardening, and recently discovered boating with Kim.
I'll be going through her writing and putting up something later.
