Such a sad news. Spoke with her just recently, at her book launch. A kind-hearted, vastly intelligent, dedicated, proactive, hard-working, and beautiful person, who contributed significantly (and innumerably) to our department and university. After hiring me, she asked me to chair (usually, the head chairs these) a search to hire a junior colleague, and at the end supported hiring two (Elizabeth from UofT and Tony from MIT), just to mention one of those qualities in her. May she rest in peace!
