Notre Dame High School would like to make all the names of deceased graduates available to our entire community. Through this website, names will be updated regularly. Please notify Joanne Tonelli ( in the Office of Advancement with the names of deceased graduates. We ask that you keep both the graduates and their families in your prayers.

How does Notre Dame get notices of a deceased alumnus?

The staff in the Office of Advancement is responsible for maintaining and updating data on the alumni population, including the reporting of death notices. These notices come to us from many sources including alumni, family members, other Notre Dame offices, and returned mail. They also come in many forms such as phone calls, letters, newspaper obituaries, notes on gift reply forms, surveys, etc. To notify ND of a recent death, please contact Joanne Tonelli at 203.937.3223.
