Ms. Edna Leoung

It is with great sadness that we report to all INRC members the recent death of Ms Edna Leong. Edna, the sister-in-law of Dr. E. Leong (Eddie) Way, was well known to all INRC regulars. During Eddie Way’s 10 years as Treasurer of INRC, Edna attended every meeting. She was the one who spent much of the week gathering receipts from all of the recipients of NIDA travel awards and made sure that checks were mailed to them in a timely fashion. She always had a smile for everyone. It was obvious that she enjoyed her work for INRC immensely, including the opportunity to make friends from all over the world and to have even a small role in the development of young scientists. Edna kept the INRC books for the entire period during which Eddie was treasurer and did a fine job. Edna was the wife of the late John Way Leong, the loving mother of 5 children, grandmother of 8 grandchildren and great-grandmother of two. She will be missed very much by her family and by all who knew her.
