It is with great sadness that I share the news that Teddy Cantanho 
passed away last weekend.

Born in 1922, Teddy turned 89 this year and was active, alert, and 
still skiing to the end.  It was sudden and unexpected when her heart 
gave out, only a month after the passing of longtime partner Max.

Teddy was a passionate skier and traveler with many interests and 
friends.  She had no pretentions about being the fastest ski racer, but 
she loved the sport and surely was the happiest racer on the hill.  
Teddy had incredible grit as well, coming back more than once from 
serious injuries that would have ended the skiing career of someone 
less determined.

It was truly a privilege and a pleasure to have known Teddy and shared 
skiing experiences with her.  We will miss her.
