John ("Jack") Armstrong: student, teacher, mentor, priest and active member of the Chicago Pagan and magickal communities for over 30 years and the Founding High Priest of Heartland Coven has passed. Our Priestess, who had Jack's Power of Attorney for Health Care, received a phone call at 5:55 a.m. on Saturday, November 13th that he had passed at approximately 5:45 that morning.

The obituary written by the family is: " John J. Armstrong, 54, owner of Alchemy Arts Bookstore, loving son of the late John and Mary Armstrong, beloved brother of Michael and William Armstrong, cherished friend of Beatrice Mahlum and Kenny Kwilosc. Services private. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions to the American Heart Association would be appreciated."

The Coven joins in the family in hoping that people will honor Jack's oft-stated wishes to have no type of memorial services.

Beatrice Mahlum
High Priestess of Heartland Coven

Another Elder in the Chicago Pagan Community has passed into the Summerland.

This morning (11/12/04) at 5:55, Jack Armstrong (John Joseph Armstrong) known to many Pagans in the Chicago area as a facilitator of many spiritual traditions and Pagan activities, has passed on.

Jack was a co-founder of the "Heartland Pagan Association", and of "The Order of the Temple of the Gnosis". He was the founder and owner of the "Hermanubis Book Store" in Southern Illinois, and of "Osiris Books Store Limited" the mail-order book sellers. More recently he was the founder and proprietor of the "Aurum Solis Book Store" and "Alchemy Arts" in Chicago.

Jack opened the door for many new people to enter the Craft.

Jack was one of our guests on the inaugural "Witch and Famous Cruises" hosted by Pagan Travel Network and Patricia Telesco.

I had spoke with Jack a couple of weeks before Samhain. Jack was of good spirits and was talking about joining us on another cruise.

Jack will be missed by many of his old friends and associates. Merry Part!

Kind Regards,
Mike Smith

Brother Jack Armstrong passed away this morning, in his sleep, around sunrise. Jack was active in the Chicago Pagan, Theosophical, Magickal, and alternative communities for the last 35 years or so. including Temple Abraxas, Aurum Solis, Light of the Moon, and Alchemy Arts. He brought authors, artists, raconteurs, occasional controversy, friendship, and liveliness to this community.

Arrangements are being made by family.

Let me know if you want further notice. I will post you on any services or memorials as the news comes to me.

Blessed Be. Love Is the Law, Love Under Will.
The Gods Walk With Us All Eternally.
Every Man & Woman Is A Star.
Shine On, You Crazy Diamond!
