April 19, 2020

It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that the Board of Trustees and Administration share with you the death of our long-time friend and Transcultural Scholar, Dr. Stephen R. Marrone. He passed away on April 18, 2020 of Covid 19.  Dr. Marrone was an accomplished teacher, mentor, writer, and nurse. Most of all, he was our friend and always dedicated to the Transcultural Nursing Society. He was a past President of the Transcultural Nursing Society and was currently serving as Second Vice President on the Board of Trustees. Stephen’s brilliant work, his laughter, wit, and personality will be missed for a long time. We will publish more in the future about his exceptional work and legacy.

Best wishes to you during this time of sorrow.

Dr. Jennie Gunn
President, Board of Trustees
Transcultural Nursing Society
