We wanted to make sure that those of you in the Centrum jazz community knew that Helen Wray — George Cables' longtime life partner passed away on Sunday, November 7th after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. George has been an anchor of Jazz Port Townsend for many years, and Helen had accompanied him on a number of occasions to Port Townsend. Helen is the same Helen of Helen's Song which has become a jazz classic.
In lieu of flowers, if you would like to honor Helen, you may contribute to pancreatic cancer research. Make checks payable to UCSF Foundation with a note “Gift in memory of Helen Wray”.
