The Maryville University community mourns the loss of treasured alumna Connie Burdzy Donius, who passed away on Sept. 2. Donius graduated from Maryville in 1955, and was a valued friend to many in the Maryville community.

Donius, who enjoyed a long career in teaching, was a generous and longtime supporter of Maryville, along with her husband, Walter Donius, who preceded her in death. The Donius University Center, a vital hub of student life on Maryville’s campus, is named in honor of their family.

She is survived by her two sons, Maryville Trustee William A. Donius, and Michael J. Donius. A third son, Thomas G. Donius, is deceased.
