While I'm still trying to get in touch with her spouse, I feel I should delay no further the sad announcement that
Ana, known here as Phyis, has passed away on 27 March, 2018.
Ana mentioned to friends and in messages here that she was struggling with her health, she passed away at home with her wife.
Ana took over running Yuriproject in 2013 with technical expertise and a very active role in scanlating manga. In my communications with her we talked mostly about hobbies and it was obvious she was a person who was quick to become deeply passionate in her interests in a variety of areas. She was someone who cared for the people that came to rely on her and worked hard even if only few would notice.
While I personally have not really interacted with the members of Yuri Project all that much, if at all, they've certainly been a significant part of my life over the years. I'm incredibly saddened and I wish nothing but the best for Ana's spouse and the Yuri Project community.
I wholeheartedly agree. Personally I did not know her, but as an avid reader of the scanlations of yuriproject I really valued her work and was always grateful for their effort, thus also her contributions (even more so now that I know she ran the group). My honest condolences to her wife, family, and friends.
I can't even imagine how painful this must be for her spouse and other people that were close to her- I did't even know them personally but this hits me hard. May they rest in peace. Thank you for everything you've done for us over the years.
Such heartbreaking news. Though I didn't know her personally, the Yuri Project is a wonderful place and I hope is left in good hands. At least she was able to spend her precious remaining time with her family. Rest in Peace, we love you.
The name appeared on the dynasty announcement text startled me. I wished I looked wrong.
Only know Phyis through yuriproject's work, I still remember her account on dynasty.
Thank you, for your contribution to our community, for being.
Rest in peace, Ana.
Though I never had a chance to speak with Ana, I've always been immensely grateful to the members of Yuri Project for their efforts in bringing the people in our community consistently high quality work.
I'm so terribly sorry to hear this news, and I only wish I could offer more than my condolences to her wife, family, and friends.
Super late and I regret this, but I could care less because the important thing is right now is to pay my respect to her and her hard work she has done. Ive read countless scanlations from them, and I cannot imagine something so tragic. Im so grateful to all the scanlations and Yuri project has been a big push in the yuri community.
A death is always so unfortunate and tragic.
Rest in peace.
