Hundreds Attend Memorial Service for Tracy Riddle

Hundreds filled Augustana’s Chapel of Reconciliation on Tuesday for a moving memorial service in honor of Tracy Riddle, the College’s long-time associate dean of students. Riddle died on Friday, July 22, after a two-year-long battle with cancer. She was 54.

"I believe God gives us everything we need, if we only are wise enough to recognize those gifts. Certainly, God gave us who we needed over these past 21 years, in the person of Tracy Riddle," said President Rob Oliver. "To Gene, Mary Kay, and Kate, and to all who loved Tracy: On behalf of the faculty and staff, and the entire Augustana community, I offer our sincere condolences and wish you God's peace."
