Memorial for Thomas Fitch
Friends and colleagues are planning a memorial remembrance and celebration of life in honor of College of Education Professor Emeritus Thomas Fitch, who passed away on August 3, 2011. The remembrance will take place 4 p.m. on September 15 at Calvary United Methodist Church, 1700 N. Towanda Avenue in Normal.
Tom spent many years teaching science education courses, working with in-service teachers of science, and serving in a variety of leadership roles for the improvement of science teaching and learning. The service will be a time to come together and share memories of working with Tom, of how Tom may have influenced your career, and how he influenced science education in Illinois and beyond.
If you have been touched by Tom’s influence, please come and join us and share your memories. If you cannot attend, please forward a few words describing your remembrance of Tom. As part of the celebration, we plan to read selections of remembrances sent to us by those unable to attend and then pass those words on to Tom’s family.
For planning purpose, please respond by September 7 if you plan to attend. Send an email to Marilyn Morey at mkmorey@IllinoisState.edu. Remembrances may be sent to the same address.
