Contributed by Chris Pollock

The Division of Institutional Advancement is profoundly saddened to share the news of the recent death of former staff member Anita Costa '06, who passed away on October 31 following a brief illness.

Anita started at IC as an administrative assistant in 1996, and later spent 11 years as a development assistant for the Ithaca Fund (now the IC Annual Fund). In 2011, Anita departed Ithaca for the warmer climes of Florida and a new position at St. Leo University's Donald R. Tapia School of Business.

She will be remembered by her colleagues for her professional manner, "can do" spirit, hearty laugh, and sunny disposition.

Services will be held this Wednesday, November 6, in Brooksville, Florida. For more details, please read her obituary.
