It is with a broken heart that I bring you this news today. I just received a kosmail from Julie Waters' beloved partner MoonWomyn saying this:

I hate to drop it on you this way but I'm hoping you can let the Kos community know that Julie passed away this afternoon.  It was very sudden and completely unexpected.  She had been doing really well and looking forward to doing even better.  This disease sucks.  She sneezed which led to aspiration, some vomiting, more aspiration, then cardiac arrest.  Her heart stopped 3 times.  She was airlifted to a local trauma center and they worked like hell to help her but her lungs were unable to come back.  
Prior to January, 2011, Julie posted under the name juliewolf beginning in 2005.

Please join me in extending our condolences to MoonWomyn and sharing our grief at this terrible loss.

UPDATE: Horace Boothroyd has posted a memorial diary for Julie Waters.

Also, Julie was a newspaperwoman, if you'll forgive my use of that dated term. You can see a lovely obituary in the Green Mountain Daily.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
