Condolences to Lori Tinkey


Please keep Lori Tinkey and her family in your thoughts and prayers. Lori’s father, Chester Ehrman, passed away October 14th.

Lori shared the following reflections on her father:
“He was a real people person who would just enjoy others to know about him. Dad loved Notre Dame from the minute of my connection with the University. He respected that this “very fine” institution (“very fine” was his way of denoting “of the highest caliber”) is firmly rooted in faith. A brilliant man with a superior intellect, he felt Notre Dame’s work in the research sphere contributed well to the world’s knowledge advancement. He was super proud to be a Notre Dame Dad and loved wearing the sweatshirt to prove it. Whether in Naples, FL, St. Joseph, MI, or Bay Head, NJ, he sported a Notre Dame cap that started many enjoyable conversations with alumni, friends, and families.”

On behalf of her Notre Dame family, we wish Lori comfort and peace during this time of grief.
