TELLES, Marcy Rose “Dakini” “The light of the sun,” The love of my life died late at night on November 19, 2015 at home in her bed, pain free, stress free, and at peace, after racing with cancer for almost three years. She was a month away from her 64th birthday. Marcy was a well-known poet, lyricist, composer, opera and musical writer, and in her final year, a novelist. We are establishing a foundation to collect, publish, and perform her work. Remaining are her husband, Kim Allen; her brother, Matthew Telles; her daughter, Gabriel Grace Solmer with her husband, Rob Solmer; and their kids and Marcy’s kidlets, Torin James, Milo Sacha, and Ruby Grace. Marcy’s Memorial is set for the last Saturday in February, February 27th, 2:30 till 5:00 p.m., in the Theater of the Glaser Center, 547 Mendocino Avenue, Santa Rosa. There will be speakers from the different phases of Marcy’s life: her initial Far Rockaway days, her college Buffalo days, her Abode days, and her thirty five years in California, as well as performances by the Occidental Community Choir, Cinnagals, Jef Labes, Mary Reagan, and the entire gathering singing Marcy and Gordon Stubbe’s Music from Home. An informal memorial with food and discussion will follow for a few hours, for all of us to share our remembrances of Marcy, with deli platters, fruit, and soft drinks, in the Glaser Center lobby. We are asking people to bring computer slide shows of photos or videos of Marcy, or poster boards with photos of her to display at this informal program.
