Diana Sweet Albritton (Educ ’94, ’96) of Charlottesville died Dec. 7, 2014. She was a lifelong educator and learner who devoted her career to helping children communicate: speech pathology was her passion, and she sought to help those with the most difficult of communication disorders. Ms. Albritton was an avid reader and animal lover who took any opportunity to be by the sea. Survivors include a son, Jeremy Albritton (Com ’02 L/M), daughter-in-law Laura Greb Albritton (Col ’02 L/M) and two grandchildren.

Catherine A. Zanga (Col ’95, Law ’98 L/M) of Charlotte, North Carolina, died Nov. 21, 2014. At the University, she served on Student Council and was a member of the fencing team, the Washington Literary Society and Debating Union and the John Bassett Moore Society of International Law. Ms. Zanga began her career as a private sector attorney in Washington, D.C., but ultimately worked in public service, first for the U.S. Office of Special Counsel and then as an assistant commonwealth’s attorney in Fairfax, Virginia. She later worked as an assistant district attorney specializing in domestic violence in Gaston County, North Carolina, and as a police attorney for the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department. An avid volunteer, she was a member of the Junior League of Charlotte. Ms. Zanga loved science fiction, had an ambition to travel the world and sought justice for the meek and the weak. Her greatest joy was spending time with her family. Survivors include her husband and their two children; her parents; and a brother, Joseph R. Zanga Jr. (Col ’99 L/M).
