Or Too Tired for an Affair, If Life Is a Bowl of Cher- ries . . . What Am I Doing in the Pits? and When You Look Like Your Passport Photo, It's Time To Go Home. "Her humor always made us, in some sense, realize the frailty of our human life, ' Brother Fitz said. "At the same time, she could raise criticisms ofinstitu- tions (in society). She had a good sense of social justice and the role of women in society." Just months before her death, Mrs. Bombeck began boxing up her papers to donate them to the University of Dayton, where they will be housed and dis- played. Over the years, she had been generous to the university with her time and money. She served on the board of trustees from 1984 to 1987 and was named an honorary trustee in 1988. She also co-chaired with her husband the National Alumni Challenge Campaign during the university's capital campaign in the 1980s; spoke at events on campus, including a writers' workshop; and participated in advertising and direct-mail campaigns to help recruit stu- dents. In addition to her husband, Mrs. Bombeck is survived by a daughter, Betsy, and two sons, Matthew and Andrew.
