Death of former employee Ruth Weeks

Word has been received that Ruth Weeks, a former employee of the Registrar’s Office, died Aug. 28 in Green Bay at the age of 62. She retired in December 2012 but remained in contact with several of her friends and colleagues through her diagnosis with advanced cancer this past spring. A native of Cheyenne, Wyo., she moved to Menominee, Mich., after college and held various jobs before joining the Registrar’s staff in 2000 as a program assistant who was often a first point of contact for students back in the days “when they still had service counters with windows.” She is survived by a brother, friends, a love of cats and an obituary that suggests the nickname Ruthie Tuesday with the final words “Who could hang their name on you?… when you changed with every new day… still, I’m gonna miss you.” See obituary.
