SYMPATHY NOTE. The WVU Parkersburg community is saddened at the passing of our friend and colleague, Drema Starkey. During her 35 years of service at the college, Drema contributed in many ways. In addition to her service in the Welcome Center, she went above and beyond through her activities on staff council and other committees. She was most recently chair of staff council and has led many fundraising events over the years. The family asks that you do not send flowers but rather make a donation to WVU at Parkersburg Foundation for the Drema Starkey Scholarship.
