Cathy Seipp, R.I.P.

It’s a different way to find out a friend died — I’m looking at my Gmail account, and in the list of fellow gmailers who are online, Matt Welch has a note under his name: “Cathy Seipp, R.I.P.”

Cathy passed away yesterday.

Catherine Seipp, a writer and media critic who became known in the 1990s for her pointed coverage of the Los Angeles Times in Buzz magazine, has died. She was 49.

Seipp, a nonsmoker who was diagnosed with lung cancer five years ago, died Wednesday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, her family announced.

Cathy was an incredible person and I wish could have gotten to know her better, but I’m glad I got the chance to know her at all.

UPDATE: LAObserved as a round up of blogger tributes. Also, I’m seeing a lot of inbound traffic from Technorati, where you can find many more fine tributes to Cathy.
