Celebration of life set for longest-serving Griz alum Emma Lommasson

On Feb. 15, 2018, new UM President Seth Bodnar followed in the footsteps of his predecessors by meeting one of the University’s treasures, Emma B. Lommasson ’33 M.S. ’39, who at 106 is likely UM’s oldest alumna. (Montanan.umt.edu)

(KPAX) A celebration of life has been set for Missoula’s oldest resident and one of University of Montana’s most loyal alums who died last weekend.

The community is invited to attend the celebration for Emma B. Lommasson on Tuesday December 17th from 4 to 6 p.m. in the University Center Ballroom on the UM campus.

Lommasson died this past weekend at the age of 107, just days shy of her 108th birthday.

She attended UM in 1929 and spent 55 years at UM in a variety of jobs including as registrar, and met all but four university presidents — meeting Seth Bodnar last year.
