UW-Green Bay mourns the loss of faculty and staff members, spouses Janice and Bruce Mielke
Friends of Janice and Bruce Mielke informed UW-Green Bay of their recent passing.
Jan was a talented designer in the Office of Marketing and University Communication for many years. Her husband Bruce began as a visiting associate professor in Science and Environmental Change in mathematics and computer science, coming to UW-Green Bay as a member of an exchange with Rhode Island College where he had been teaching. Bruce became full-time faculty at UW-Green Bay in 1982, with the same title, working extensively with the Extended Degree Program and served until 2001, when he was granted associate professor emeritus status.
In 1998, the Faculty Development Council honored Bruce with UW-Green Bay’s “Teaching at its Best” Award. Staff at Casperson Funeral Home & Cremation Services, Sister Bay, Wis. are handling arrangements, and at the time of this posting, a time and place for a memorial service had not yet been determined.
