A public memorial is planned next month for Mary Healy, executive director and chief executive officer of the Sacramento Zoo, who died recently while traveling to the Galapagos Islands.
The event is set for 3 p.m. Sept. 20 at the zoo in William Land Park. Details about the memorial are still being worked out, zoo spokeswoman Tonja Candelaria said Monday.
Healy, who led the zoo for almost 15 years, died Aug. 8 from a cerebral aneurysm and heart attack while traveling by ship from Ecuador to the Galapagos Islands. She was 61.
