Andrew Thorson Memorial Education Fund
Andrew Thorson, long-time Lourdes Academy board chairperson and dedicated system parent, died from complications after being stung multiple times by hornets on Sunday, August 2. He was received into the loving arms of Jesus on August 15, the Feast of the Assumption at the hour of Divine Mercy, surrounded by family. Andrew and his wife, Heather, who serves as the enrollment coordinator for Lourdes Academy, have four daughters, Abigail, Lydia, Emily and Vivian.
In all things, Andrew demonstrated integrity, compassion, professionalism and a servant’s heart. He was a product of Catholic education, graduating from Marquette University High School, Marquette University, and then Cardinal Stritch University, and was committed to advancing the ministry of Catholic education at Lourdes Academy. He served on the Board of Trustees since 2012, including five years as chairman.
The Andrew Thorson Memorial Education Fund has been established to help support Andrew's wishes for his daughters to continue to have a Catholic education. Donations can also be mailed to:
