A life lived to the fullest
Pat Kibler loved life and treasured relationships. When an alleged drunk driver killed him in late December, the campus was overwhelmed with sadness.
Family and friends described Kibler, a junior business major, as free-spirited. “He was so much fun — busy all the time, sleeping or busy,” his mother, Vickie Kibler, said at his memorial service. But while he had a playful, mischievous side and an appetite for adventure, he remained a loyal son, brother, and friend, according to fellow student Liz Clark (above). The George Fox community hasn’t forgotten him. To honor his memory, a Patrick Kibler Memorial Fund was created, the proceeds of which were used to fund the start-up of a senior capstone course.
Longtime George Fox Secretary Dies
Glenna Jansen, who served more than two decades as secretary to four George Fox presidents, died Dec. 12, 2004, in Newberg. Beginning in 1973, she served with President David Le Shana (1969-82), acting President William Green (1982-83), and President Edward Stevens (1983- 98) before her retirement in 1994. She then came back to the president’s office twice to fill in on a temporary basis, the last time in 1999 with President David Brandt. She was 73.
