Sympathy to Cada, Healey families

Sandra “Sandee” Burt, mother of John Cada (maintenance), mother-in-law of Vickie Cada (development and alumni relations), and aunt of Tammy Vondrasek (financial aid), died Saturday. 

Tom Healey, former director and administrator in the M.S. in Nurse Anesthesia program recently passed away in Arizona. Tom was one of the founding members of the Twin Cities campus in his role at the Abbott Northwestern Hospital system. He contributed to the establishment of 2500 Park Avenue as a home for SGPP in the early 1980s and continued to serve in many capacities until his official retirement a few years ago. In addition to his time with the M.S. in Nurse Anesthesia program, he served many SGPP roles including co-chair of the Curriculum Committee, director of the Surgical Technology Certificate, HLC Criterion Committee co-chair, a representative on several SMU strategic planning committees, and countless other task forces and committees.

The Saint Mary’s community extends its sympathy to the Cada and Healey families.
