Jane Kronick, Professor Emeritus of Social Work and Social Research

Jane Kronick died on March 19 at Chester Memorial Hospital. Professor Kronick came to Bryn Mawr in 1959 after earning her B.A. at Barnard and her M.S. and Ph.D. at Yale, and served on the faculty for 38 years before retiring in 1997. Her research, supported by grants from NSF, NIMH, USIA and other agencies, focused on national policy for environmental hazards. The research and courses taught by Kronick and her colleagues represented the first introduction of concern for environmental hazards in a School of Social Work in this nation. She received the Lindback Award for Distinguished Teaching in 1987 and directed Bryn Mawr's doctoral program in social work for more than a dozen years.

Kronick is survived by her husband, Paul Kronick, three children, and two grandchildren. A memorial service will be held at Haverford Friends Meeting on May 23. Condolences can be sent to Paul Kronick at 178 Crosslands Drive, Kennett Square, PA 19348.

Sue Joceville, Administrative Assistant

Sue Joceville died on March 28. Joceville worked at the College for 11 years as administrative assistant to the dean of admissions and financial aid. During that time Joceville's knowledge of almost everything and everyone at Bryn Mawr, and her grace, kindness, good humor and unwavering concern for others earned her the nickname of "The Glue" in the Undergraduate Admissions and Financial Aid Offices. Her service to the Bryn Mawr community earned her the McPherson Award in 2007. One of her nominations read, in part, "For Sue, helping people is the absolute right thing to do. Sue commits herself to a life well lived, and that means doing your best, every day, whether or not you feel like it."

Her presence will be sorely missed in the Gateway Building and on campus.

Services were held in Primos, Pennsylvania. Condolences to her husband, Jake, daughter Gina, and son Tony, may be sent to 901 Broadway Avenue, Secane, PA 19018.
