July 2012 Archives

It is with deep sadness that we report the passing of Isabel de Sousa Ramos, Ph.D. graduate student in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese Studies.

Isabel was a remarkable student whose strength inspired us all over the past four months as she remained dedicated to her research while undergoing treatment for advanced stage colon cancer. Her excellence and kindness will be missed; we mourn the loss of both a colleague and a dear friend.

The Department of Spanish and Portuguese Studies, in conjunction with the Medical School, will honor Isabel's memory at a memorial service which will be held early in fall semester. (Details forthcoming.)

We extend our heartfelt condolences to Isabel's family and friends both here in Minnesota and in Portugal.
