The Loyola University Chicago community mourns the death of Brenda Overton (BA '07, MA '11), reference assistant at Cudahy Library. Brenda was a library employee of 25 years, a graduate of the Institute of Pastoral Studies, and an active member of the Reba Place Church in Evanston.

Brenda volunteered in her church’s prison ministry to provide support and counseling for children whose parents were incarcerated or recently released, and at The Pick, a free thrift store for those in need. She will be remembered for her strong faith, her service to others, and the warmth she shared with friends and colleagues.
