In memory of Tanta

Posted by Charles II on November 30, 2008

Doris Dungey, whose columns at Calculated Risk were one of the few real sources of insight into the complex world of mortgages, died at the age of 47 of ovarian cancer in Columbus Ohio on November 30th, 2008. While she was undergoing treatment, she shared her wit and wisdom selflessly. Her Compleat ÜberNerd remains one of the few accessible sources of information on mortgages. I certainly relied on it.

Spirit light,
Spirit bright,
Spirit guiding us through night,
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Thank you for your keen insight.

Go with God, Tanta.
And keep a candle burning for us, your fans, who will follow all too soon.

And, yeah, it’s sappy, but I kinda think that she of The Mortgage Pig would have liked it.

    Sad day indeed, I sure loved the snark and education I received.
