Services Friday for Van Koevering
Thomas E. Van Koevering, 69, a former UW-Green Bay professor of Education and chemistry, died Monday at his Sheboygan home. He retired in 2002 after a 33-year career that included not only distinguished service in the classroom but also a great deal of science-education outreach in the community.
He earned the 1988 Founders Association Award for Excellence in Community Outreach. He coordinated the Northeastern Wisconsin (NEW) Science Forum for middle and high school teachers, which brought teachers to campus to gain up-to-date information in the sciences and to network with scientists and each other. He also earned the Alumni Award in Science Education from Western Michigan University, his alma mater.
In addition to his wife, Linda, Van Koevering is survived by three children, grandchildren, and other family members. A memorial service will be held Friday, 7 p.m., at Trinity Alliance Church, 3121 Nagle Ave., in Manitowoc. A time of visitation and support will be held at the church on Thursday, from 5 to 8 p.m., and again on Friday from 5 p.m. until the time of service. Memorial funds have been established in his name for Trinity Alliance Church building fund and the Alzheimer’s Association. See full obituary.
