Good Afternoon All,

Please keep Professor Dwyer and her Family in your prayers as her Family and Friends mourn their loss and she is remembered. Thank you. God Bless.

It is with great sadness that I write to let you know that June Dwyer passed away suddenly this weekend. June was beloved by so many of us as an inspiring, generous, and dedicated teacher, colleague, and friend. Manhattan College and the English Department, in particular, were graced by her extraordinary gifts for so many years, and she will leave an absence that will never be filled.
The best we can do is to try to fill that absence with our many wonderful memories of June, and, for her faculty colleagues, among the most prominent of those memories is that of her unwavering commitment to her students. Nothing–nothing–ever challenged her belief that you all were the most important members of the College, and doing what was best for you was our shared, primary duty and privilege.
There are no plans yet for a memorial service, but we expect one to be held at the College at some point in the future. We will surely keep you informed. In the interim, should you care to send your condolences to her family, you can do so at this address:
The Dwyer Family
30 Fifth Avenue
NY, NY 10011
Please share this information with anyone who might want it, and don’t hesitate to be in touch with any of us.
On behalf of the entire English Department, I send our best wishes to you all,
Rocco Marinaccio, Ph.D.
Professor of English
Director of the Liberal Arts and Science Core Curriculum
