Condolences

Condolence From: Guy Rotella
Condolence: Dear Ms Minkkinen--I retired a few years ago from the Northeastern English department and only just heard word of Ralou's death. She was a most congenial, capable, and productive colleague, and she was an enormous help to me in my work as editor of the Morse Poetry series. I remember her with fond appreciation. Please accept my sincere condolences on you loss.--Yours, Guy Rotella

Condolence: I met Ralou my first day on the Northeastern Campus in 1958 when George Speers hired me to work in the Press Bureau. There was never a kinder woman or a more proficient woman in all that she did for the Press Bureau for many, many years.She is one of my fondest memories of my years at Northeastern and I send my deepest sympathy to her family. She was a gem!

Condolence: Dear Family of Ralou:

Ralou & I were colleagues at Northeastern
University for 35 years, retiring respectively in 1997 and 1995. She is remembered as a conscientious and caring colleague who enjoyed her work and was well liked and respected.

My condolences are extended to her family

Condolence From: Jean Duddy
Condolence: Dear Renee -

I was very sorry to hear the sad news of Ralou passing away recently. We worked side by side in the English Department for many years until her retirement. (I retired last year.) We shared many laughs over the crazy things that happened involving faculty and students.

I remember that Ralou was very close to her family. She talked to her sister every day by phone and visited her on Sundays. I heard about her brother meeting his wife-to-be in France during the war. She enjoyed visiting her niece (you?) during her August vacations.

Ralou had a great wardrobe. She was well dressed every day. I would ask her how many closets it took to hold all her clothes. I never got an answer.

Every morning she walked up the stairs to the fourth floor. She considered it part of her exercise.

I remember her 50th anniversary celebration. There was a big luncheon at the Faculty Center in a private dining room. Also, she was invited to the president's office to receive a gift.

I have many great memories of Ralou
and will remember her fondly.

With sympathy,
Jean Duddy

Condolence: Dear Christine and Arthur - So sorry to hear of Ralou's passing. We only met her a couple of times, but I know that you all were close. It seems from what Noelle tells us that she died as she lived, with style and grace. We are thinking of you

Condolence From: Mary Jane Troy
Condolence: Hello Renee,

Again, sorry to hear about your Aunt. May she rest in peace.

I wanted to share some comments from your Aunt’s former colleagues. She clearly was beloved. Leslie’s comments are powerful. You must have been enormously proud.


“I remember Ralou. Wonderful woman. So sorry to hear that she passed away.
Did you try contacting Kinley Roby or M.X. Lesser?
Frank Blessington and Gary Goshgarian will also remember her.
I can’t say that I recall the party, but she was beloved. Always trying to be helpful”

I will be sure to send along any other messages I receive.

Take care,
MJ

Dear M.J and Gayle,

I am so sad to hear about Ralou. She was the most kind and compassionate woman! When I first arrived as a young assistant professor, fresh out of grad school, she arranged to let me work in the main office after hours until my computer arrived. I remember when I FINALLY finished my manuscript, I asked if she had a box the appropriate size to send it off and instead of saying “no,” (a perfectly reasonable and true answer) she went on an expedition around and beyond the office until she found me one. I had been so unused to this sort of kindness from my grad institution that I shed actual tears of gratitude at her solicitude and efforts to make sure I was taken care of.

The person who worked most closely with Ralou for many years and who might have memories to share would be Jean Duddy. She is retired, now, but I think she still responds to this email address: j.duddy@northeastern.edu. I know she would want to know about Ralou in any case, so I’m copying her on this correspondence.
