Marie Colvin, beloved daughter of Rosemarie and sister to William, Michael, Aileen and Cat, was killed
on assignment in Homs, Syria, on Feb. 22, 2012. Marie's legion of devoted friends and colleagues mourn with her family the loss of an extraordinary human being, whose dedicated calling as a foreign correspondent will continue to inspire admiration and hope for a better world and whose gift for life, love and friendship remains with us in spirit.
The Colvin family has established a memorial fund in honor of Marie. The fund will direct donations to charitable and educational organizations that reflect Marie's lifelong dedication to humanitarian aid, human rights, journalism and education.
