Vickie Duscher, age 64, died of cancer at her home in Aitkin, Minnesota on January 2nd. Vickie worked in the President’s Office from 1998 to 2012. Vickie formed genuine relationships with people across campus, reminding us all that, at its core, a residential college is about human interactions as we seek to better understand the world.
Vickie’s former colleagues recall that she was deeply caring, fiercely loyal, hard working, perceptive, and was always ready to address the daily challenges using her practical wisdom. And her laugh was greatly appreciated — Vickie was able to find joy and humor in all situations.
