In Memoriam -
Remembering friends who shared their lives with Wichita State
Wilson K. Cadman
Emylou Keith

    Emylou Keith

When Emylou Keith graduated from the University of Wichita in 1950 alongside her beloved sister, Betty, they were two of only a handful of women in the GI-dominated graduating class. Both sisters previously had graduated from Wesley Hospital's nursing school and had served as 2nd Lieutenants in the Army Nurse Corp during World War II. At the University of Wichita, Mrs. Keith earned a degree in psychology and then began a long career in nursing administration in Missouri, eventually becoming executive director of the Missouri State Board of Nursing. She married Farris Keith in 1956. Upon Betty's death in 2001, Mrs. Keith established the Emylou Keith and Betty Dutcher Faculty of Distinction Professorship at Wichita State University. She also contributed to the construction of Marcus Welcome Center, and established an estate gift to support the W. Frank Barton School of Business and the School of Nursing in the WSU College of Health Professions. Mrs. Keith died on Feb. 25 in Jefferson City, Missouri, at the age of 93.

    Helen M. Brown

When Helen Brown’s daughter, Kathryn, died in 2012, Mrs. Brown and her husband, Charlie, chose to honor her memory by creating two scholarships at Wichita State, one in business and the other in health professions. Kathryn had been a WSU student at the time of her death, and both Helen and Charlie audited courses and felt a strong appreciation for the university. Mrs. Brown died on March 1 in Wichita at the age of 79. Born in Oklahoma City, she graduated from Central Christian College in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. Music was one of her chief interests; she enjoyed taking classes at Wichita State and attended opera performances around the country with her husband. She was also a devoted bridge player, achieving the status of life master. Mrs. Brown is survived by her husband and one son.
