In Memory: Longtime PVM Staff Member Elizabeth “Liz” Brooks

Friday, June 12, 2020

The Purdue Veterinary Medicine family is deeply saddened by the passing of Liz Brooks. A key contributor to the college’s Business Office team and part of the PVM family for over 20 years, Liz retired from Purdue on April 4. Following a recent illness, she passed away Sunday, June 7, at IU Health Arnett in Lafayette. Liz will be greatly missed by so many, especially within the PVM family. 

A visitation took place yesterday evening, with a funeral service celebrating Liz’s life to be held at 1:00 p.m. this afternoon (June 12) at Congress Street United Methodist Church (2010 Congress Street, Lafayette, Ind. 47905) with Pastor Rachel Metheny officiating. COVID-19 precautions are required. If planning to attend, please wear a face mask. A private burial service is planned for a later date.
