Alumni Notes

Note:  Due to a clerical error in the Office of Alumni Relations, Annemarie (Germano) DiCola (FCO '80) was mistakenly listed in the In Memoriam section of this issue. She is alive and well, living in New York. Fordham University regrets the error and any undue grief or confusion it has caused.

Anna DiCola, the late mother of Frank DiCola (CBA '77) and mother-in-law of Annemarie DiCola, passed away last April. She will be among those recently deceased members of the Fordham community remembered during a special Memorial Mass on Monday, Nov. 1, 2004, at 10:30 a.m. in St. Paul the Apostle Church, which is located at 60th Street and Columbus Avenue in Manhattan.
