As the Virginia Tech Department of Horticulture mourns the victims of the Virginia Tech tragedy that occurred on April 16, 2007, it also remembers Jocelyne Couture-Nowak, wife of Jerzy Nowak, Department of Horticulture head, who was among the 32 victims. She was killed while teaching Intermediate French in Norris Hall. A memorial service for Couture-Nowak took place in the Peggy Hahn Horticulture Pavilion on the Virginia Tech Campus on Tuesday, April 24, 2007.

“Jocelyne was a charming woman, filled with warmth and sparkle, who we will remember as a dedicated teacher with a passion for the French language and culture and a love of gardens,” states the Virginia Tech Department of Horticulture’s Web site.

In lieu of flowers, contributions in Couture-Nowak’s memory can be made to the Jocelyne Couture-Nowak Scholarship for French majors, the Jocelyne Couture-Nowak Memorial Garden Fund or the Sylvie Couture-Nowak Educational Fund:
