Burge alumni passes away
We are sad to report that Barbara Pittman has passed away. Barbara graduated from Burge School of Nursing with her RN and BSN degrees. Her daughter in law, Kathy Pittman, is currently a faculty member at Cox College.
Barbara was a great nurse and dedicated her life to helping others. Her final job as a nurse was with the Visiting Nurse Association, from where she retired after 22 years of service. She was loved by many and will be missed. If you would like to make a memorial contribution online, the link to CoxHealth Foundation’s website is below. Please write “Barbara Pittman” in the text box.
