My husband and I, both professors at York College, were very saddened when we read of Johanna's untimely death. We both remember her as a wonderful student who always brought so much life and joy to our classrooms. Johanna was in class with both of us one semester and she called it her "Double Doutrich" semester. In my Spanish class, she was always willing to share insights into her culture and contributed in so many ways in making the learning experience a positive one for everyone. Johanna stands out for me as one of the most memorable students in my 28 years at the college and I treasure her memory. My heart goes out to her family and friends and I pray for God to surround you with peace and love.
