Transcript lttMf<ei& %& %m&\ At her memorial ser- viceonSundayFeb- ruary 29,1992, President Marguerite Ross Barnett was eulogized as a humane and caring leaderwhowasheretoobriefly, but whose legacy will live on. "Outlossesaresevere. What has already been said, what will continue to be said and felt long after this memorial service concludes, are the ways we asses our deprivation. "But if each tribute to Margueritemeasuresourloss, it also tells our gain. Such a death-untimely and unkind- -has a way of handing over to usthelifeof thatperson. Itisno longer hers to shape and validate. Now it will assume the shapes andbear the valueswe give it," UH System Chancellor Alexander F. Schilt said. Thememorialservice attheCullenPerformanceHall attracted about 700 people to hear friends and colleagues speak of the impact Barnett's like had on them. Followingtheservice, Barnett's daughter Amy said she hopes the Texas Center for University School Partnerships continues. She said her mother had always wanted to give high school students the opportunitytocontinueintheir academic pursuits. Barnett's husband Walter King said he hopes UH continues "to be committed to herideals and goals." Barnett's mother, Mary Eubanks, was also in attendance. President George Bush sent a letter to King stating his sorrow over Barnett's death. It was read during the serviceby theRev. BillLawson of Wheeler Avenue Baptist Church. The letter stated, "Marguerite was a dedicated servant to the University of Houston, to her community and to her country. She was very special, and she will be missed." Houston Mayor Bob Lanier said that Barnett's impact on Houston will live on. "I think we in the city of Houston, students, family, faculty and trusteesareindeed fortunate that we have had a great lady in our midst whose life has shed many sparks," Lanier said. Acting President James Pickering said, "For us, she articulated a dream, a dream that UH can and will become the premier 21st century urban university "It will do soby reaching out and engaging the city, its citizens and problems in a way that makes a significant and lasting difference in the character and quality of the common life we share together." Barnett died in Hawaii of complications from cancer. She and her husband Walter had honeymooned there 12 years ago. Kingsaidduringtheir 11-day vacation in Hawaii, Barnett was happy "We went back to all the islands we had visited before. The day before she died, she was on the putting green," King said.-Debbie Housel At the 1991 commencement ceremonies, President Marguerite Ross Barnett congratulates country music singer Larry Gatlin with a kiss after he received his diploma from the university.
