Steve Fienberg’s widow in mass shooting

We are deeply saddened to report that Steve Fienberg’s widow, Joyce, was among the 11 people murdered on October 27 at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, USA. She was 75. Former IMS President Steve Fienberg passed away almost two years ago: http://bulletin.imstat.org/2017/04/obituary-stephen-e-fienberg-1942-2016/.

Our thoughts are with Joyce’s family and friends, and those of the other victims.
