Le Moyne College alumna Noreen Reale Falcone passed away February 6th. A graduate of the class of 1958, regent, trustee, and benefactor of Le Moyne College, Noreen’s passing is a great loss not only to us at the College, but to the communities and charities far and wide that she served. In 1998 the campus library was named in her honor.
