Passing of Barbara Proctor

Passing of Barbara Proctor

Barbara Proctor, a 23-year Gallaudet University employee, passed away peacefully on December 7, 2019 at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland. Barbara served the Gallaudet community in many ways. She started out in 1996 as a secretary for what was then known as the Office of Enrollment Services.  Over the years, she assumed several roles. In 2011, she was promoted to Verification/Consortium Coordinator in the Office of the Registrar. 

Barbara, a resident of Columbia, Maryland, enjoyed decorating for celebrations, crocheting blankets for babies, reading daily devotionals, and listening to music. Her lifelong dream was to become a NASA astronaut. She grew up as a competitive gymnast and even tried out for the Olympics.  Barbara often and proudly reflected on her years as a gymnast. She also served as a coach for young gymnasts. In her free time, she enjoyed sunrises and whale watching at the ocean.

Barbara Marion Proctor was born on November 26, 1952 in Sayreville, New Jersey to Walter and Rose Fodor, both deceased. She attended Trenton State College, which is now known as The College of New Jersey, and did her student teaching at the Marie Katzenbach School for the Deaf in West Trenton, New Jersey.

Barbara is survived by two children, Elise Souders and John Proctor, one grandson, and two siblings, Laura Fodor and Paul Fodor. Funeral arrangements are pending.

Requests that would normally be sent to Barbara should temporarily be directed to Elice Patterson, University Registrar, at elice.patterson@gallaudet.edu.

Gallaudet University mourns Barbara’s passing, and sends its condolences to her family, friends, and colleagues. For the Registrar’s Office, Barbara was fondly known as an authority on FERPA and the office’s “mother hen.” She will be profoundly missed by all.
