It is with great sadness that we announce to the Umbra community the sudden passing of Anna Girolimetti. As many of you know, Anna served for many years as Umbra’s Resident Director. She spent nearly two decades caring for hundreds of students, staff, and faculty each year with a blend of humor, attention to detail, and an unwavering desire to assist and support the development of others.
Anna is deeply missed by our entire team, past and present. We all feel blessed to have had the opportunity to know her as a dear friend and colleague, and to have her children and grandchildren in our lives. Umbra would not be what it is today without her many years of dedication and guidance. She was the pillar that defined Umbra’s all-embracing philosophy.
If you would like to share a message or memory with her family, we invite you to send an email (text and/or photos) to [email protected]. Our team has volunteered to compile your kind messages and share them with her family when they are ready.
Anna touched the lives of thousands of individuals through her work with Umbra. We will miss her dearly and she will forever be in our hearts.
