From David Hicks: "So very sorry to learn of the passing of Grete Borgen Castenada. Grete was a singles and pairs champion in her home country of Norway and had a long professional career as a principal performer with the Ice Capades and Holiday On Ice. Grete coached in the Bay Area for 40+ years. My condolences to her family at this very difficult time."

Carmichael Funeral Homes | Smyrna & Marietta, GA

It is with heavy hearts that we report the sad news that our video archivist Carl Moseley, has passed. Carl was such a devoted skating fan, a wonderful archivist of skating history and he kept us all entertained and guessing with his "mystery skater" games that he posted almost daily. Carl devoted countless hours to producing a DVD series on theatrical show skating that really captured the Golden Age of professional shows with one DVD devoted to the skating talents of Ronnie Robertson. Carl's son Michael has provided the link to an obituary page for Carl: http://m.carmichaelfuneralhomes.com/obituaries/wall?obituaryId=2503342
Our deepest condolences go out to his wife of 41 years Sue, son Michael, daughter Stephanie, other family members, friends and skating fans who appreciated his devotion to keeping theatrical show skating alive. He will be greatly missed!

Carmichael Funeral Homes provides funeral, memorial, personalization, aftercare, pre-planning and cremation services in Smyrna & Marietta, GA.

Attention Skaters / Coaches / Officials - past and present: As many of you know, I am in the process of creating my second cookbook featuring recipes from figure skaters and members of the skating community. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the US Figure Skating Memorial Fund. I would love to include as many members of the skating community as possible, both current and past (at all skating levels). I am hoping that you might consider submitting a recipe for the book. There are several easy ways you can do this. (See the attached information.) It does NOT have to be a gourmet recipe at all – even simple recipes for comfort food can be delicious! IF YOU DON’T COOK yourself, how about submitting a family recipe or a good recipe from a friend? I am also hoping you might consider forwarding this information to your skating friends and colleagues and encouraging them to submit recipes as well. In addition, I am trying to include recipes in memory of skaters/coaches/officials who are no longer with us. So many past members of the skating community have left such a wonderful legacy for today’s skaters, and I would love to remember them in the book. If you have contact information (for family members or close friends of any skaters no longer with us) and would be willing to share my information and encourage them to participate, that would be a tremendous help. I would love to make the book a great representation of the skating community and skating history, while also sharing some fun recipes and raising funds for the USFS Memorial Fund. Thank you so much for your participation. I appreciate your help and look forward to making the book a great success! If you have an.y questions, suggestions, etc., please feel free to contact me at [email protected]
I’m the daughter of the late Joan Walden. She starred in Aurther Godfrey‘s winter TV shows, was with Ice Follies and Holiday on Ice, as well as the shows at the Hotel New Yorker. I’m desparately seeking some film clips of her TV shows.. and have been searching for more than two decades with no luck. I’ve called the Arther Godfrey estate as well as CBS TV, and have been unable to find anything. Any help would be most appreciated!
