Terri Lee Knoke, 67, passed away on April 16, 2020, at her home in Burbank, Washington from complications due to metastatic breast cancer. She was an avid enthusiast of lichens. Terri was a member of Northwest Lichenologists, Northwest Scientific Association, and the Washington Native Plant Society (WNPS).

Terri was a chemical engineer and moved to Burbank to work for the Boise-Cascade Paper Company. She was also an accomplished artist in botanical illustration.

Most recently Terri, along with Jenny Jenny Von Reisand Mickie Chamness, coordinated the Badger Mountain lichen inventory in Richland, WA September, 2018.

Terri went to many Northwest Scientific Association meetings to connect with Northwest Lichenologists, attending the paper sessions and participating in field collecting.

Terri was an enthusiastic botanist, contributing her time to many WNPS eastern Washington activities. 

One of her last requests was to donate a medical microscope to a deserving and developing lichen student. Her microscope was given to Heather Ahn Stewart, a student of Lalita Calabria at Evergreen University in Olympia.

Terri will be missed by all of us in Northwest Lichenologists.
