In Memory: Danusia Bennett-Taber

DanusiaOn June 2 former CORBA Board of Directors member and ardent trail advocate Danusia Bennett-Taber passed away after a long battle with cancer. Her efforts on behalf of all outdoor enthusiasts will leave a long and lasting impression.

A memorial service will take place this coming Sunday June 9, organized by Wendy Engelberg of Girlz Gone Riding. See below for Wendy’s message and details.

Our beloved, incredible, lovely Danusia has passed on. Riders and hikers please join me for her memorial service Sunday, June 9th at Malibu Creek State Park. We will be riding or hiking to the picnic table in the wooded area before the gated Salvation Army compound.

From MCSP: Ride or hike in and when you see the creek bed on your left, cross it. Go left on the fire road. At the fork go right. Picnic table will be about a .5th of a mile on your right.

Hikers: Meet at 9am: the 1st parking lot in MCSP on the left. Lisa Granata will meet you and guide you to the memorial area.

Bikers: Meet at 9:15am at the 1st parking lot on the left. Wendy will guide you to the memorial area.
When we all meet at the memorial spot, I will ask anyone wanting to come up and tell a story about Danusia to honor her, and or speak about how she made an impact in your life. I will also be announcing a project Danusia and I started to help raise funds for her rare cancer: The Danusia Bell program.

Then we ride and hike in her honor. This is what she wanted…….she wouldn’t have it any other way…

I hope to see everyone there to honor this incredible woman and keep her in our thoughts.

If you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact me. Don, Danusia’s husband, will be there with family as well. I will be posting this to a few different places so I don’t miss anyone. Lisa is taking care of the MBU people for me. Please pass the invite to the memorial on. 

I thank you so very much in advance for joining in honoring this special woman.

Wendy Engelberg
