A Tribute To Bette Hagman 08/24/2007

Recommended Posts

As we all know Bette Hagman was an Icon in the Celiac World. She is the reason for so many wonderful breakthroughs in cooking, and baking. Sadly she has passed no doubtedly to heaven for all she's done for this community. In rememberance of her I ask that on friday 08/24/2007, that's this friday, we should all wear something green, or a celiac/gluten free tee-shirt. Lets take a moment and let her passing be silently remembered for what she stood for awareness and a better life for those with Celiac. Please pass this along and ask your friends/family to do the same.

If you don't think it is too rude of me to ask, what disease did she die from? I must have missed discussions regarding her on this board. Was she ill a long time, or was this something that came on recently? Thanks for filling me in. Barbara

Barbara,

I don't know--I went to Celiac Central, and there was nothing at all about it.

Hopefully someone will be able to fill us in :)

Bette had a pretty severe stroke a while back and don't think she ever competely recovered from that. Don't know the actual cause of death but she was in her 80s.

I was just reading her books at the health food store yesterday that's sad. Hope she didn't suffer.

I've just bought some of her books, and found out that she lived in my general vicinity! I'm sad to hear she has passed, and will wear green on Friday.

I will definitely be wearing green on Friday. Her "The Gluten-Free Gourmet Bakes Bread" was my first gluten-free cookbook and her spirit of adventure in the gluten-free kitchen is one that will stay with me, hopefully forever. I have to ask, is the color green from Dr. Peter Green, or the Irish, or something else? I just like to know these things...it really isn't all that important.

TIA,

Margaret

Green is the color for celiac awareness. Just like pink is for breast cancer, yellow for cancer etc. It is used for awareness ribbons, bracelets, t-shirts etc.

I found it and it's on! A quick Google shows that it's from the University of Maryland's Center For Celiac Research.

I love the barefoot imprints on it and also your avatar, that's one long-legged kitty and some beeeyutiful colors.

Keep us posted - I think I'd bring my own contrast with me (not quite sure what that is, but heck, I don't trust too many peeps with my food).

Margaret :)
