Remembering Gretchen Ilgenfritz

We are sad to report that Gretchen Ilgenfritz, an active member of our U-M Seattle Club Scholarship Committee for thirty-five years, passed away on October 9th, 2019. Her obit in The Seattle Times can be found here. She is survived by her husband Bob, also a U-M alum, who represented the Seattle Club on the West Coast U-M alumni board for many years. We wish to express the club’s gratitude for Gretchen’s many years of service to the U-M community in the Pacific Northwest. Gretchen’s devotion to our club scholarship was an enduring passion for her, and any who might wish to commemorate her life might consider making a donation to our scholarship fund to help continue the work that so inspired her.
