In Memory of Filthy Rotten

From 2008 to 2013, Filthy was our volunteering coordinator, and impacted the lives of so many con goers, staff and attendees alike. In fact, Filthy drew in many of our current staff with her energy and lovable “bossy” attitude. Since the announcement of her passing on April 16th, 2014, the outpouring of love has been incredible. For five hours straight, and continuing on now, Twitter and Facebook have been flooded with thoughts, wishes and remembrances.

I am saddened by the loss of @FilthyRotten tonight. I don’t even know what to think, other than I’m glad I got to know her.

@FurryWeekendAtl @FilthyRotten ensured FWA became my home con. I spent my 1st year calling it “Filthy’s Weekend Adventure” to her amusement

As more love and memories are provided, we will add them here. Please send any photos or stories you would like to contribute to social.media@furryweekend.com; we want to hear everything.

There will never be another person like Filthy in our lives, and her passing leaves a hole that will likely never be filled. But in remembering the way she made us laugh, smile, and otherwise be happy, we will ensure she never really leaves us.

We love you, Filthy, Tangela, Boss Lady. We will always miss you, and never forget you.
