It saddens me to announce the untimely death of our beloved office manager, Nancy Kallus. Nancy died unexpectedly at her home near West on June 3. Both faculty and graduate students are saddened by the loss of this colleague and friend. Nancy was, of course, very competent, having worked at Baylor for 25 years. She was ready to assist me, as chair, and other faculty as well, no matter what needed to be done. Also, Nancy was a joyful person, treating our faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students with heartfelt kindness and much patience. She was invariably cheerful and also very thoughtful. Nancy greeted us with a smile, and, frequently asked about the children (or grandchildren) of our graduate students or faculty. Nancy was a lovely presence in our department and will be greatly missed. And she will be missed by friends all over campus. Our department extends our most heartfelt condolences to her daughter, Jamie Ruth, her son-in-law, Shannon, and grandchildren, Keri Jo and Justin Ruth and all those who cherished a friendship with Nancy.
