Memorial Day ceremony is May 29

Iowa State employees, retirees and spouses who died during the past year will be remembered at the university's annual Memorial Day ceremony on Monday, May 29. It will begin at 9 a.m. in the Reiman Ballroom at the ISU Alumni Center, 420 Beach Ave. Parking is available on the east side of the building.

The ceremony will include:

  • An invocation by Rev. James DuBois, pastor at Northminster Presbyterian Church
  • Prelude by the Collegiate Brass, Collegiate United Methodist Church
  • A reading of names
  • Time for family, friends and colleagues to share memories of loved ones

Individuals who aren't available to speak that day can share comments about loved ones through an online form. Their comments will be printed and displayed the day of the event and included the following week with all obituaries on the ISU Retirees website.

Individuals on the Wall of Alumni and Friends at the alumni center who died in the past year also will be recognized during the ceremony.

The ceremony is hosted by the ISU Retirees Association. Questions may be directed to Angie Schaper, 294-5790.
