Magdalen Berns — “a shero among women” — died at 5:20 a.m. ET this morning.
Her close friend Marion Calder called me at 5:28 a.m. from Scotland to break the news.
Before she passed, Marion told me that they had read my National Review tribute aloud to Magdalen on her deathbed. This is an honor I can’t describe.
If you pray, please pray for Magdalen’s friends and family. If you pray for the dead, please pray for her soul. And if you do neither — please read my tribute, follow her work, and yell thanks at the great nothing for this Someone so bright.
Editor’s Note: This post originally misidentified Berns’s age. She was 36, not 35.
