The Biomedical Library employees are mourning the passing of co-worker, Loretta Johnson. Loretta began work at the Medical Center Library 25 years ago and later moved to the Campus site where she worked the reference desk and interlibrary loan during the evening hours. Fellow employees have described her as kind, always nice to everyone and a wonderful person. She was also described as a good listener, was loving and had a great sense of humor. Loretta was a caring person and went the extra mile to meet the needs of the library users. She touched the lives of many people, employees and students alike. Her remains will lie in state at Small’s Mortuary, Mobile, AL on Monday, December 12, 2011 from 1:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. Visitation will be held on Tuesday, December 13, 2011 from 9:00 a.m. until the 11:00 a.m. funeral hour in the Small’s Mortuary Chapel, 950 S. Broad St, Mobile, AL. The Interment will follow in the Lawn Haven Cemetery, Theodore, AL. Memories and condolences can be shared via
