The university mourns the death of Dr. Georgia Pappanastos, Arts ’83, who taught at Marquette for 25 years. She served as assistant chair and later as chair of the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures. She retired in 1994 as professor emerita.
Pappanastos lived in Montgomery, Ala., where she was an active member of the Greek Ladies Philoptochos Society (Friends of the Poor).
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel headline read “Thomas Robert Bausch wanted Marquette students to make business life reflect values,” and those words characterize the impact of the former dean of the College of Business Administration.
Bausch earned his doctorate at Indiana University and held positions on the faculties at John Carroll and Bradley universities before joining Marquette as dean in 1978. He served in that capacity until 1993 and then continued teaching until 2010.
He is survived by his wife, Bernadine; eight children; 17 grandchildren; other family and friends.
Trustee Emerita Mercedes Hurley Hughes, Arts ’48, Grad ’50, died in June.
She was elected to the Marquette University Board of Trustees in 1987 and served until 1998, when she received emerita status. Hughes supported various academic efforts on campus, including establishing the endowment for the Rev. George V. Coyne, S.J., Annual Lecture in Astronomy and Astrophysics housed in the Klingler College of Arts and Sciences. She also was a donor to the Tolkien Archives Fund established by the late Richard G. Blackwelder.
Hughes is survived by two daughters and six grandchildren.
