In Memoriam of Kathleen Zillinger

December 02, 2019

Kathleen Zillinger passed away unexpectedly on Dec. 1. Zillinger worked in a variety of roles across many campus units over the past 12 years, serving under the STARS program. She worked several years, off and on, in Facilities, where she often managed the front desk, greeting customers and shepherding incoming work. Zillinger is remembered for her many traits; she was kind, loving, gentle, caring and always with a hint of rebellion under the surface. She remains an inspiration to many and will be missed by all.
