North American Catholic Educational Programming Foundation Inc. (NACEPF) is sad to announce the passing of our former Vice President, Barbara Primeau. Barbara served as the Vice President and Director of NACEPF for 32 years.
Her intelligence, selflessness, faith, and passion were instrumental in building NACEPF. Her numerous responsibilities included helping to produce NACEPF's educational newsletter, selecting qualified teachers for NACEPF's distance learning courses, and sharing the impact of NACEPF's mission. She was deeply involved in the organization's ministry efforts, and she championed many of NACEPF's philanthropic programs including building schools, providing healthcare, and feeding children in some of the poorest areas of the world. She often said, “children cannot learn on an empty stomach.” As a former social worker, her dedication to helping people realize their full potential guided her as she led with both practicality and compassion.
Barbara was beloved in our community and we are all mourning the immense loss. We invite you to read what some of our partners shared about Barbara.
