The UE Community expresses its heartfelt condolences to Keith Gehlhausen, Executive Director of Human Resources, and his family, following the unexpected loss of his beloved wife, Dorothy "Dot" Gehlhausen.

Dot was a firm believer in the power of development of young people, she provided decades of service to the Boy Scouts of America at the local and national levels. She also had an immense love for animals and her compassion extended beyond words as she actively rescued, fostered, adopted, and supported countless animals in need.

Please join the Gehlhausen family this Friday, June 30, in your colorful clothing to celebrate and honor her life. A visitation will be held from 9:00 a.m. to noon at the University’s Neu Chapel with a memorial service to follow. Parking is available at Lot N and S. Rotherwood Ave.

Following the service, a reception will be held at Eykamp Hall in the Ridgway University Center.

The family kindly requests that in lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her memory to the Buffalo Trace Council and Dogs and Cats of the Dominican Republic.

Please continue to keep the Gehlhausen family in your thoughts and prayers during this time.
