Wie Jane Akshar in ihrem Blog und anderen Internetforen meldet, ertrank gestern am frühen Abend Susan Weeks, die Gattin von Kent Weeks, im Nil.
Das Ehepaar lebte auf einer Dahabiya am Westufer des Nils unweit der Fähranlegestelle.

Susan Weeks war als Zeichnerin fest in die Erforschung und Aufarbeitung der Funde aus KV 5 eingebunden.

Anscheinend ist sie von der Dahabiya gefallen, von der Polizei gefunden und identifiziert worden (siehe hier Susan Weeks ertrunken).

Der Präsident der American University in Cairo (AUC) gab heute, u.a. via EEF, folgenden Nachruf heraus :

"It is with great regret that we announce the death of Ms. Susan Weeks, wife of Egyptology Professor Emeritus Kent Weeks.

Susan received a Bachelor of Arts in graphic arts from the University of Washington. She and Kent met while working on the Nubian
Salvage Project in Upper Egypt. In addition to being one of the foremost archaeological illustrators of the past half-century, she has built a career as one of the best general field archaeologists in Egypt,
having worked on sites all over the country, both with her husband and as a specialist called by other teams. Members of the AUC community who knew and worked with Susan will always remember her sly wit (which her quiet demeanor never succeeded in bscuring), her keen and penetrating intelligence, and most of all the immense care and concern that she devoted to her friends, colleagues and students.

In addition to her husband, she is survived by her two children, Emily and Christopher, and one grandchild.

Those wishing to send condolences may do so by email care of magdiali@aucegypt.edu, Dr. Weeks's assistant.

There will be a memorial service at AUC's Oriental Hall on Tuesday, December 15th at 4:00 pm."
