Diane Hullinger, an employee in Loyola’s Office of Registration and Records, lost her fight with an aggressive form of brain cancer Aug. 4.
Hullinger worked as a senior associate registrar of records and technology and was diagnosed in May with glioblastoma, a malignant brain tumor. Despite treatment efforts, the cancer was too aggressive, according to an email sent to the Loyola community from Campus Ministry.
A member of the Loyola community for more than 25 years, Hullinger was originally hired by Information Technology Services and worked as a data administration manager before joining Loyola’s Office of Registration and Records, the email said. In this office, she helped support the launch of LOCUS, Loyola’s online registration and records portal.
Hullinger was dedicated to her work and enjoyed collaborating with other employees, according to the email, and was proud to say her son and daughter are Loyola alumni.
“Diane’s good-nature, helpfulness, intellect, dedication, and kind demeanor touched many throughout the University,” the email said. “She will be extremely missed.”
Her funeral mass is set to be held Friday at 10 a.m. at St. Giles Catholic Church in Oak Park, a western suburb.
Condolences can be sent to the Hullinger family, 1226 N. Euclid Ave., Oak Park, IL, 60302.
