Remembering Barbara Pitschel (1939-2010)
Barbara Pitschel died on August 3, 2010, two weeks after she was diagnosed with pneumonia and five days after she was diagnosed with an advanced form of cancer.
In 2010 Barbara was planning her retirement. Just weeks before her death she assumed the title of librarian emerita and associate librarian Brandy Kuhl was promoted to head librarian.
Barbara's friends and colleagues gathered in the Library on September 28, 2010, to remember and celebrate her life.
