There will be a Celebration of Life for Francesca Latawiec at Aryaloka Buddhist Center at 1:00 on Sunday, October 29, 2023. Francesca lived in Exeter, NH and died unexpectedly at home on Oct. 1, 2022. She was a devoted member of the Aryaloka sangha and became a mitra in 2020.
Throughout her life Francesca was an avid environmentalist. She graduated from Salem State College with a Bachelor of Science in Geography. She earned a Master’s degree in Geology from the University of Illinois in Macomb and obtained a second Master’s degree in Soil Science at the University of New Hampshire. Her decades-long career in the environmental sciences involved both state and local government postings and her passing is deeply felt by her friends and the environmental community.
