Below is text of Bullock's announcement:

Dear CHHS Faculty and Staff,

These last few weeks have been hard for many of us in the college and across the university as we have found out about the horrific death of our colleague, Judy Calder. Judy was buried at Arlington National Cemetery in what has been described by her husband as "a beautiful ceremony." Several of us in the college have worked closely with Mr. Calder to plan a memorial/celebration of Judy's life.

The celebration is planned for Tuesday, October 9th in the Sandra Neese Room of the Sarah Fleischmann Building. Jim Calder and their daughter, Kim, along with other family members will be present at this celebration. We will gather from 6:30 to 7:00 p.m. At 7:00 a brief celebration service will begin. There will be an opportunity for friends and colleagues of Judy's to share their memories. There will also be time for extemporaneous comments. Following the program there will be more time to talk among ourselves and with Judy's family and friends. Before and following the program, there will be hors d' oeuvres and refreshments.

Please join us to celebrate the life of our colleague, Judy Calder. Please RSVP to Peggy McGraw at or (775) 327-5708.
