Don Marsala Reacts To Betty's Death

Director of Safety and Security Don Marsala has reacted publicly to the news of Betty Francis' death, posting the following message on a former student's Facebook wall:

"I'll send an e-mail when I get more information about Betty. She had been ill for some time. We visited her in the rehab place a few weeks ago and even though she was quite sick she still has the old Betty spirit!"

Update: We just spoke with Marsala. "We'll miss Betty's spirit and zest for life," he says. "She loved working with the students and was a true ambassador for Safety and Security and for the college itself."

He tells us that there will be a graveside service at the Poughkeepsie Rural Cemetery on Friday. Marsala suggests people meet at the Darrow Funeral Home on South Hamilton Street at 10:30am that day to then proceed to the cemetery.
