The University of Portland community lost one of its most treasured colleagues, Rowena Bramlette, former associate vice president for budgeting and a member of the UP class of 1988, the night of January 23, after an extended battle with cancer.
According to a campus-wide message from University president Rev. Mark L. Poorman, C.S.C., “Rowena was a person of extraordinary warmth, kindness, and generosity of spirit. In the course of her work in our Budget Office, she had the opportunity to interact with every division and department across campus. She was a dear colleague and friend to so many at UP, and she will be deeply missed.” Rowena retired on March 1, 2019.
Funeral arrangements are pending. Please remember Rowena and her husband, Rod, and her family in your prayers.
