Passing of Marlys Brunsting
Marlys Brunsting passed away Sept. 22 after a long and valiant battle with cancer. She worked 17 years for UW-Green Bay’s Cofrin Library — first as an interim circulation supervisor, a part-time reference librarian and then as the full-time coordinator of library automation — before accepting the position of library director at UW-Stout. She was awarded the title director emeritus at Stout upon her recent retirement in recognition of the significant positive impact she had in the two short years she was there. Brunsting is survived by her husband, Larry Segriff, two daughters, Megan Reyes and Caitlin Collins and other relatives. Memorial services will take place this Friday (Sept. 25) at Our Savior Lutheran Church in Green Bay. Visitation begins at 9 a.m. until the service at 11 a.m. The family requests donations to the Susan G. Komen foundation in lieu of flowers. The family would also like to express their deep appreciation to the nurses and staff at St. Croix Hospice, who brought great comfort in a difficult time.
