Beth Holtz, an honorary Notre Dame Monogram winner, avid philanthropist, promoter of education and wife of former head football coach Lou Holtz, passed away this week at the age of 82.
Awarded an honorary Monogram on September 13, 2008, she was recognized the same weekend that a sculpture was dedicated in her husband’s honor on Notre Dame’s campus.
“Beth was not only an advocate of our University’s mission and a loving presence in the Notre Dame family, but a wife to one of our coaches, a mom to one of our student-athletes and a supporter of many students through the Lou & Beth Holtz Scholarship at Notre Dame,” James E. Rohr Director of Athletics Jack Swarbrick said. “Our University community mourns the loss of Beth and our prayers are with the Holtz family at this time.”
Lou and Beth Holtz founded the Holtz Charitable Foundation in 1998. The program is committed to promoting Christianity, education and charity and has awarded grants to many non-profit organizations that support its mission.
