Judith Pipher, 1940-2022

22 February 2022

With great regret we note the passing of Judith Pipher on Monday, February 21st.  She was a pioneer in infrared astronomy and longtime editor for The Astrophysical Journal.  She was a voice of grace, patience and wisdom and we will miss her.  It is simply not possible to do justice to her career in a short note here, but brief history of her scientific career can be found at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judith_Pipher.  She was recently interviewed by Frank Timmes about her editorial work https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4zWPwWnAbSw, and a record of a recent TED talk is at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJdiBqc0qDE.
