Biology staffer remembered as treasured colleague

Dorey (D.J.) Lafreniere is recalled by co-workers as someone who always made the day brighter. An administrative/financial clerk in the Department of Biological Sciences, she died March 22.

“We loved her and will certainly miss her,” says Nancy Barkley, secretary to the head of the department. “We all work closely together in this department and D.J. always had us laughing and she enjoyed every day to the fullest.… We had a lot of fun.”
