In Loving Memory of Professor Barbara Leapard
We are deeply saddened by the loss of our friend and colleague. Many of you know already that Professor Barbara Leapard had been on medical leave this winter semester 2013 because of a recurrence of her cancer. She died on April 26, with her two daughters Sara and Emily at her side. Our thoughts go out to her husband, Dave Leapard, who is also an EMU professor, and to the rest of her family. Barb was a wonderful person and excellent teacher – she was much loved by her students. Barb will be missed greatly and remembered here for a very long time.
A memorial service in memory of Professor Leapard is planned for Tuesday, Oct 1 2013 at 3:30 in the Student Center, Room 300.
