On Dec. 19, 2012, the New Orleans and Tulane community lost one of its great ambassadors with the passing of Lurlyn "Ms. Fitz" Fitzpatrick. Fitzpatrick, 93, was a fixture in the Green Wave community from 1964-2005, serving as a football secretary and a special assistant with the Tulane Athletics Fund.
Tulane Athletics would like to remember Ms. Fitz and would like to ask anyone who ever knew her to please take a minute and submit your story. Please take a moment to share your Ms. Fitz story below and we will post it on this page as a tribute to a great Tulanian.
Fitzpatrick's memorial service is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 22, at Holy Name of Jesus Church in New Orleans (6367 St. Charles Avenue) with visitation beginning at 11:30 a.m. and the funeral slated for 1 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family is asking for donations to be sent to the Ms. Fitz Football Endowment Fund (http://www.TulaneGreenWave.com/MsFitz) or to Holy Name of Jesus Church
