The Journal of Mining and Metals publishes a series of obituations from miners and metalworkers, as well as their families, to highlight the impact of the metal industry on society.
The most recent collection, published this month, is the first to include a tribute to a miner’s mother, who died from lung cancer at the age of 94.
The obit describes the widow, Carol Lee, as “a dedicated mother of three children who always was there for her children.
She loved the outdoors and was always on the lookout for things to help keep the children healthy and happy.”
In an obit that describes her as “an extraordinary person who had a unique sense of humor,” the obit notes that she was “an enthusiastic volunteer for her local school and a tireless advocate for the cause of education in the community.”
The article describes her family as “humble, hardworking and very supportive.”
Lee died in 2009, and her son, William, died in 2013.
It is not immediately clear how much of this obit has been written, although the Journal has been publishing such memorials for decades.
In recent years, several other obituances have been published in the journal, including those of miners’ relatives, the author of a book on mining, and the author and journalist Charles M. Dutton.
At the time of publication, it was unclear whether the obituary had been accepted for publication.
Other obituals have been edited by scholars and published online, such as the obiterium for a family that worked at a local mine.
While some of the obits are highly political, many are not.
In recent years the Journal, with its broad circulation, has also been publishing more scholarly works, such the obis of members of Congress.
Some of the journals obituaria are published in English.
Correction: An earlier version of this article misidentified the name of the mining journal.
The article has been corrected to reflect that the journal is The Journal, not The Journal Mining.
