Marie Lovell1st Annual Marie Lovell Memorial Baseball Game


The Department of Intercollegiate Athletics has announced that the Fri., April 30 baseball game between the SSU Seawolves and the Cal Poly Pomona Broncos will be designated the "Marie Lovell Memorial Game."

Lovell, a 25-year employee of SSU and a Parking Field Supervisor for Police Services, passed away unexpectedly on March 18. A big fan of sports, Lovell was a long time supporter of the SSU baseball program so it is fitting that Marie will be remembered at a campus baseball game. Bill Fusco, Director of Intercollegiate Athletics and John Goelz, head baseball coach, have confirmed that the "Marie Lovell Memorial Game" will be an annual event and will help raise funds for a memorial athletic scholarship for baseball in her name.

A moment of silence in Marie's honor will be observed before the start of the April 30 game at Seawolf Baseball Diamond. Donations will be accepted at the entrance to the ballpark that day for Lovell's scholarship fund. For further information, contact Judy Mefferd at Police Services, 4-2143, or Bill Fusco at Intercollegiate Athletics, 4-2639.

IN MEMORIAM

Remembering Aurelia Melgar

Aurelia MelgarAurelia Melgar passed away on the morning of April 17, 2010. She had been a part of the campus community for 34 years before her retirement in December 2006, and continued to keep in contact with many of her SSU friends.

Aurelia began her career at SSU in 1972 in the School of Education. Eventually she worked in the Department of Mexican-American Studies, Interdisciplinary Studies Institute, Office for Students with Disabilities, Administration and Finance, and then back to the Disability Services for Students Department (it was just right!).

During her career at SSU, Aurelia was a Sister and Advisor to Lambda Sigma Gamma Inc., an adopted mother to so many students, an advocate for students who were enrolled in the DSS program and a “mother” to her student employees. She received her B.A. in History in 1993 and was working on her Masters in History prior to her retirement.

Aurelia loved the SSU community and her sorority sisters. She will be greatly missed.

Aurelia leaves behind her husband Mario and daughter Ana. Friends are invited to attend a Memorial Mass on Sat., April 24 at 1 p.m. at Daniels Chapel of the Roses, 1225 Sonoma Ave. in Santa Rosa. Visitation will begin at noon on Fri., April 23 with a Rosary at 2 p.m. at the Daniels Chapel.
