Former trustee and alumna, Janet Carney, passed away July 10. Dr. Janet Carney, a member of the class of 1980 and a valued member of the college's Board of Trustees, died on July 9.

During her tenure on the Board of Trustees from 2000-2009, Carney served on the educational policy committee, concerned with maintaining the high academic standards of the institution. A proud alumna and a generous supporter of the college, she often spoke of the excellent preparation she had for graduate school. She graduated with a D.P.M. from the Pennsylvania College of Podiatric Medicine in 1984 and maintained a private podiatry practice in Staten Island, N.Y. for more than 25 years.

Carney is the mother of three sons: Matthew Mobilia '11, Christopher Mobilia '12, and John Mobilia.

"I am very saddened at the death of Janet who has been a very dear friend for many years," says Father Jonathan DeFelice, O.S.B., president of the college. "Her membership on the board at a critical time in our history allowed us to experience her many talents and valuable insights. Her love for the college and her generous support will be forever cherished. May the Lord grant her the rewards she so richly deserves."

A mass of Christian burial was celebrated on Saturday, July 14, at the Saint Anselm Abbey Church.
