DUBIN, RANDI  
DUBIN--Randi. Randi Thulin Dubin, who was admired by family and friends for her vivacious spirit, compassionate nature and resilience, died peacefully in her sleep at her home in East Hampton, NY at the age of 61. She was born on June 14, 1954, on Staten Island, NY. She received a BA in psychology from the City University of New York and a MA in counseling at Columbia University. She lived in Manhattan with her husband, Michael Dubin, whom she married in 1982. She and her husband raised three daughters, Krista, Erika and Karoline, who each regard her as their best friend. Randi was selflessly devoted to her daughters and had the ability to make others feel part of the family. She was known as a film aficionado, a gifted chef and a close confidante. Randi had a lifelong interest in advocating for animal rights, adopting four rescue animals and volunteering with Camp Rusk, a foundation for retired horses. While struggling with a motor neuropathy, she inspired us with her sharp wit and vibrant sense of humor. Her ashes will be scattered onto Accabonac Harbor off the dock of the Dubins' Hamptons property. In addition to her daughters and her husband, she is survived by her parents, Einar and Louise Thulin of Staten Island, NY, and two brothers, Richard Thulin of Bethlehem, PA, and John-David Thulin of Southampton, NY. A memorial service will be held on Sat February 20th at 10:30am in Manhattan at St. Jean Baptiste Church (184 East 76th Street).

DUKE, ROBIN  
DUKE--Robin Chandler. The trustees and staff of the United States - Japan Foundation note with deep sadness the passing of our beloved founder, Robin Chandler Duke, on February 6. Ambassador Duke understood in 1980 that Japan and the United States were moving into an era of unnecessary friction over trade and other issues, friction that threatened our alliance. With characteristic energy and vision, she approached Mr. Ryoichi Sasakawa, a Japanese philanthropist, and persuaded him to make a generous contribution of $45 million to endow what has become today the US-Japan Foundation in New York. In the past 35 years this foundation has donated more than $90 million to our core programs, enhancing K-12 education in each country about the other, bringing young leaders from both nations together into lasting networks of communication and friendship, and more recently, strengthening the role of women in both nations. Robin Duke played a critical role in building a strong board of trustees, infusing the board and staff with her dynamism and practical knowledge of international affairs, and her strong conviction that Japan and the U.S. share the same values. Her legacy will last well into the future. We miss her vibrant presence. James Lintott, Chairman of the Board; George R. Packard, President
