We are deeply saddened to announce the death of longtime Bear Creek Association resident Marilyn Olmstead.  Marilyn died in a cycling accident this past Wednesday while riding on a rural road in Yolo County.  We will all remember her as a warm and engaging member of the Bear Creek Community.

In her professional life, Marilyn was a University of California, Davis chemistry professor emeritus. The University has also been mourning her death. “We are heartbroken to learn that Professor Emerita Marilyn Olmstead has passed away,” said a Tweet from the UC Davis Chemistry Department. “Marilyn was a world-class crystallographer and an outstanding teacher beloved by her students. She will be greatly missed.”

Marilyn is survived by her husband, Alan Olmstead and their two children Nate and Janis.
