Dear Members of our Spring Hill College Community,
It is with a heavy heart that I share with you the news that one of our recent students Madeline (Maddy) G. Limber, of Dallas, Texas, died unexpectedly on Wednesday, July 27, 2016.
Maddy came to Spring Hill College (SHC) from Ursuline Academy in Dallas. While at SHC during 2014-2016, she pursued studies in psychology and served as a member of the Badger cheerleading team. Maddy is survived by her father, Jason Limber; her mother, Joyce Limber; Henry (brother) and Bella (sister).
The Chancellor and the Provost join me in expressing our deepest condolences to all of Maddy’s friends and family. As a member of our community, she will be deeply missed and remembered for her spirit and enthusiasm.
We have been in communication with Maddy’s family and delayed the sharing of this sad news until their wishes were fully known. At this time, funeral arrangements in Dallas are still pending but will be open to the public.
The Student Government Association has established a fund for those who wish to make a memorial contribution in her honor. Interested individuals may find more information on the the Maddy Limber Memorial Fund at https://www.gofundme.com/2gymqndg.
The campus community will come together to honor and celebrate Maddy’s life once classes have begun. We will provide you with information when it becomes available regarding any on-campus memorial event.
Our sense of community is integral to who we are at Spring Hill, and the loss of a community member affects each of us differently. Father Lucey and Father Mossa will be available for pastoral care, please contact 251-380-4085 to reach them.
Our Counseling Center staff will also be available to anyone who would like support during this difficult time. Please contact 251-380-2270 to speak to a counselor via phone, or visit the Wellness Center between 10am-2:30pm Thursday or from 9am-12noon on Friday. Beginning Monday, August 1, the Wellness Center will resume regular hours from 8:00am-4:30pm.
