This list includes information starting in July 2021.
This list has been updated as of November 17, 2022, to the best of our knowledge.

We do our best to keep this list up-to-date each month gathering as much information as we can from numerous sources as they are made available to us, as there is not one comprehensive source to provide us this personal information of obituaries, wedding announcements, engagements, and new babies. If you notice a friend, loved one, or yourself, not listed, please email Emily R. Smith '01, Director of Alumnae Engagement, at ersmith@sms.edu, so we can add to the list and update the alumnae record. Thank you! 


IN MEMORIAM 

Give rest, O God, to your servants who have come to dwell with you, where sorrow and pain are no more. Surround those who grieve with your love, that no one may be overwhelmed by loss, but may have confidence in your goodness, and strength to meet the days to come. Amen.¹
