Jeanne Brodeur to be honored by her Long Beach aquarium colleagues
The Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach has created a scholarship fund in honor of Jeanne M. Brodeur, its vice president of development who died Oct. 19 after a long battle with cancer.
"Jeanne taught us so much and many are better people because of her," said Linda Glasco, development event manager at the aquarium. "She gave us strength, wisdom and life advice that we have passed on to our loved ones."
Brodeur, 58, joined the aquarium staff in 2003 and was diagnosed with cancer in 2004. On Monday she will be recognized as the 2009 outstanding professional by the Assn. of Fundraising Professionals.
Donations in Brodeur's name also can be sent to the Jeanne M. Brodeur Woman to Woman Campaign, which provides money to pay for cancer treatments and transportation to their medical appointments.
