Oh wow!  Chris was a member here back in the day, and I believe went to a convention or two.  (I want to say the first one).  I'm so sorry to hear this.

I am not sure if this was a Zap's member, but Diann posted the following on Facebook:
 
Long-time Trixie friend Christine Janicik Harmon has passed away from the liver disease that has plagued her for a while. My thoughts and prayers go out to her husband and family
 
54 years old. Just last Tuesday she was so full of hope as she was finally getting on a liver transplant list

Thanks!
 
Since my mom has passed, I called my aunts to wish them a happy Mothers' Day.
 
We took Steve's mom to Branson this weekend and to lunch this afternoon.
 
Such a bitter-sweet day, but a day well spent nonetheless.

Some of the younger Bob-Whites on the board will have a better guess at what the band's sound than I can from this description: "Their experimental sound is kinetic punk, free and alive. Think of a midwestern DIY version of The B52s."

 
If you click through the link to the band's site, you can hear one of their songs.  It does sound a little like the B52s when it comes to pretty solid harmonies (NOT a punk thing), a 60's upbeat vibe (also not punk), and a driving drum line (could be punk), however the B52s were considered new wave, not punk.

Thatís interesting, because in my younger years I didnít care for it that much. Unfortunately now I canít remember why.

 
I can think of a lot of reasons not to like this one -- lack of a real mystery, Trixie being ridiculously romantic, for the two that bugged me the most -- and I don't know that it was one of my top favorites as a kid, but reading it as an adult Julie Campbell's writing skills covered a lot of faults for me.  I'm scared to re-read Mystery on the Mississippi, because that was absolutely one of my favorites as a kid, and I'm worried I'll be much more aware of the writing flaws as an adult.  Although not all the Kathryn Kenny's were Stratemeyer Syndicate level writers; some of them get fairly close to JC, so I'm probably worrying for naught.
