Prayers Requested for Patricia Alvarez

In Our Caring Community, by , on February 6th, 2020

We have some sad news! Patricia Álvarez, adjunct professor in the Modern and Classical Language Department has passed away. Patricia died this past Friday, January 31, 2020, after battling cancer that spread quickly. Patricia has taught Spanish for several years at NU. ¡Que en paz descanse!

Originally from Maracaibo, Venezuela, Patricia has taught Linguistics and Spanish at the University Level in her birth country as well as in Canada and the United States over the past several years. She was the editor of Presencia Latina, a Spanish language newspaper in Canada, and the co-host of a Spanish language radio program for eight years as well. She was very involved as a community leader for Latin American immigrants, and was always glad to share her culture with students and anyone else who was interested.
