School Mourns the Loss of Alumna and Longtime Supporter

Shirley Bridge, ’45, passed away this past weekend. In addition to being a prominent community-member and tireless advocate for multiple social causes, she was a longtime supporter of the UW School of Pharmacy. She will be greatly missed by the faculty, staff and students whose lives she impacted.

Memorial contributions can be made to the Bridge endowed professorship, a fund Shirley and her husband, Herb, created to promote programs that focus on geriatrics and women in pharmacy. Gifts may be made online, or you can contact Director of Development Claire Forster, (206) 616-3217, to make a donation.
