October Adamson Woods
October Adamson Woods (born October 17, 1945) passed away on April 2, 2011, in Duluth, Minnesota, after an extended illness; she had been under hospice care. She was 65. October had been to Meherabad once, in 2001. She moved to Myrtle Beach from, I believe, Seattle in November 2000, where she lived at Briarcliffe West. I posted the following comment on an online memory book that I found for her (thanks to her friend Faith Knox for giving me some details to post):
October was a deeply spiritual person, a vibrant and creative spirit. She loved Avatar Meher Baba and made a pilgrimage to his Tomb Shrine in Meherabad near Ahmednagar, M.S., India in 2001, where she made a special connection with one of his women disciples, Katie R. Irani, who became a mentor to her. We knew October when she lived for a short while in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, near Meher Spiritual Center. Her home was beautifully decorated, showing her exuberant love of color, art, and cultures of the world (one room was decorated in detail with an African theme, complete with simulated mud wall and animal skins!). She will be remembered as a unique personality who made her mark.
