Find Hoyas from This Class

  • In Memoriam List

    Georgetown mourns the loss of its sons and daughters. On this page we pay homage to fellow Hoyas who have passed away.

    If you notice a classmate is missing from the list, or if you would like to notify us of a classmate who has recently passed away, please email

    If you would like to submit a personal message, you may also submit a Class Note request.(link is external) All information will be verified by Georgetown University before your note is published.

    One of our classmates, Frances “Misty” Dailey was lost to us during our Senior year, but she is remembered by family and fellow Hoyas every year.  The Class of 1978 senior gift was made in her memory, and that gift has grown into a fund that now supports the annual Misty Dailey Fine Arts Awards.  The gift was a wonderful gesture on the part of the class and has become a benefit to hundreds of Georgetown students.
