Boyd Koehler, associate professor emeritus, offered these words of remembrance:
“I worked closely with her at Augsburg University in the library for almost a decade and was struck by the impact she had on so many faculty, staff, and students. She was a genius in her ability to make the library a very welcoming atmosphere and also was a stellar role model for students. She created a lasting impression for all of us with her strong work ethic, her incredible sense of humor, and her moral convictions. She was an indelible embodiment of the college’s commitment to academic excellence and dedication to truth.”
