Passing of Michele Edwards, Administrative Specialist for the Rensselaer Union

It is with great sadness that we write today. Over the weekend, it was learned that Michele Edwards, Administrative Specialist, had passed away in her home. Many students knew her as the ever-present warm welcome to the admin office. We have been in touch with the family and have expressed our condolences. We encourage you to keep them in your thoughts.

Services will be Wednesday, April 20th with visitation hours 4-7pm followed by a funeral. All events will be at:

Bowen and Parker Bros. Funeral Home
