Obituary.


From Tom Burr, director, New York State Agricultural Experiment Station (NYSAES) [2014-12-16, 16:46]:

It is with great sadness that I must share the news that long-time member of the NYSAES community, Cathy Heidenreich, was killed earlier today in an automobile accident. Few details are available at this time.

All those in Plant Pathology, Horticulture, Extension and the agricultural community who worked with her knew Cathy to be a valuable, generous, kind and caring member of the many research and extension teams to which she contributed her skill, knowledge, creativity and sense of humor. She brought great credit to Cornell, CALS and the Geneva Experiment Station over many years and her presence will be sorely missed. All of us extend our deepest sympathy to Cathy’s husband, Gregg, and the entire family.

Please join us, Wednesday, December 17, 2014 for comfort and coffee at 11 a.m. in Barton Hall, Room A137. Cindy Glanville from the Faculty Staff and Assistance Program will be joining those who wish to attend. Cindy will also be available throughout the day Wednesday.

We will share additional information as we learn more.
