The memorial service for faculty member Kathy Hull has been scheduled for 1 p.m. Saturday. The service will be at the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Wichita at 7202 E. 21st St. N.

After being hit by a car on March 6, Hull went into cardiac arrest as a result of complications from her injury and died on March 12.

As a faculty member of the Art, Design and Creative Industries program, Hull was the visual resources coordinator. Hull’s son, Ram Lama Hull, said she was “an artist, writer, dancer, musician and educator, that worked in the art department for 29 years.”

Ram Lama Hull said one of her favorite art forms was origami. A highlight of Hull’s career at WSU included her leadership role in creating an art exhibit in 2002 called “Sacred Spaces.” The multimedia exhibition featured paper cranes along with other art forms. The goal of the exhibition was to promote “cross-cultural interfaith dialogue and awareness of our endangered natural environment.”

As a part of the Saturday service, students can stop by McKnight throughout the week to create an origami crane in honor of Hull which will then be taken to the service.

Ram Lama Hull said the service is meant to be a celebration of her life. Those who go can share stories and memories of Hull in hopes of “reflecting her creativity, compassion and love of life.”
