Pioneers Remembered

The Pioneers Remembered ceremony is a memorial service that acknowledges TWU students, faculty and staff who have passed away. Services are held once per year, now during the fall semester, as an opportunity for friends and family to gather and share in remembrance.

Help us remember those we have lost by using our guest book to submit tributes for the individual(s) listed below. These tributes may be posted on our website to create a digital memorial and may be used in the Pioneers Remembered service, which will be held Nov. 19, 2021, 11 a.m., at Pioneer Circle (rain location, Margo Jones Auditorium).

We extend our deepest condolences to the family and friends of our TWU community members (listed below) who passed away between Jan. 1, 2019. and May 31, 2021.
