We have learned with sadness and regret that Mrs. Ann Pope, Professor Michael Pope’s wife, passed away. The manager of the departmental stockrooms from 1974-1994, Ann was a friend and a colleague to so many and mentored many stockroom work-study students. Ann’s commitment, kindness, good humor, and her talents in graphics design contributed to building the Department. Numerous friends and family of the Popes, including people associated with Georgetown, attended a moving memorial service at St. Alban’s Episcopal Church on March 4.
Her obituary may be found on the website of the Washington Post. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the U.S. Humane Society, www.humanesociety.org or to the Carcinoid Cancer Foundation, www.carcinoid.org.
We will miss Ann greatly.
