In Memoriam Charmaine Bergman

From the Canadian Warmblood Horse Breeders Association comes news of another breeder's passing. Below is the CWHBA's article of tribute to Charmaine Bergman. Rest in peace.

A beacon has gone out far too early and far too quickly. Charmaine passed away today (February 24) after a relapse of cancer that had attacked her spine. Always positive, she had led the CWHBA through a difficult recovery at the same time as she herself was recovering from an earlier cancer. Her welcoming attitude and constant dedication to the association, over so many years, was a beacon that drew new people into the fold. She was an avid and charming conversationalist who's knowledge and broad life experience made her comfortable in every setting. 
Her interest in people was genuine.

Charmaine's career with the CWHBA spanned more than 20 years and included service as President of the Saskatchewan Chapter, National Secretary and Treasurer and finally National Chair. She was also a senior inspector and qualified International Young Breeders judge.

Her personal connection to the industry was as an accomplished dressage rider, a breeder and stallion owner.

Our thoughts and deepest condolences go out to her husband John, and her close circle of friends.

Although this end was anticipated, we could not be prepared and are deeply saddened. We miss her and will keep on missing her for sometime to come.
