Tebo family thanks community for support
April 6, 1998

Kathy Tebo and her family have expressed their thanks to faculty, staff and friends who helped them during a recent family crisis. Kathy is a secretary in the alumni office. Her husband Norman Tebo, a plumber in facilities management suffered a stroke in January. Co-workers from across campus came to their aid with a lunch and dinner fund raiser in February.

"We were overwhelmed by your kindness and we wish we could personally thank each and every one of you," said Kathy Tebo. "We are deeply grateful for all your cards, prayers and support.".

"The outpouring of support at the luncheon and dinner brings true meaning for us to the words 'UConn Family.' Your caring makes our small family feel we are part of a huge family in our UConn community."

Normal Tebo is at home continuing therapy to regain the use of his limbs and speech, Kathy Tebo said, "but as many of you know, you can't keep him down for long. He's a jokester and loves to talk. We are sure those qualities will help him in his recovery."
