Passing of Maurine Loomer
Maurine Loomer, known to many retirees and longtime UW-Green Bay alumni as the spouse of longtime faculty member Al Loomer, passed away over the weekend at the age of 96. Memorial arrangements are pending. Meanwhile, Al Loomer is battling back from his own health crisis. At last word, he was out of intensive care at Ripon Medical Center after an episode of heart trouble at age 97. The former meteorology and math teacher has remained a fixture on the tennis courts and as a participant in commencement ceremonies at UW-Green Bay even though it has been decades since his retirement.
