Ex-IT Manager Patricia Tobin Dies

The Feb. 10 noon Mass at St. Maryís Chapel will be offered in memory of Patricia Tobin, 58, former manager of voice services for Information Technology, who died Jan. 14.

Tobin, who had retired from Boston College in 1997, worked in telecommunications throughout her more than 19 years at the University. IT Human Resources Director Karen King said Tobin played a major role in updating the Universityís phone system. At one time, King added, all new employees had some contact with Tobin, since she was responsible for distributing new phones, phone numbers, long distance access and PINs.

A funeral Mass for Tobin was celebrated on Jan. 18 at St. Josephís Church in Needham. Burial was at Holyhood Cemetery in Brookline. Donations may be made in Tobinís name to Boston College or Regis College, her alma mater.
