In Loving Memory

Dr. Edward "Ted" Pokorny

Thank you for choosing to make a gift to the University of St. Thomas in memory of Dr. Edward "Ted" Pokorny. Gifts made to the Dr. Pokorny Memorial Fund support a pre-med scholarship fund at St. Thomas: The Niels and Carol Sorensen Scholarship.

Ted passed away at the age of 33 on March 28, 2018. He graduated from Hill-Murray High School in 2002, the University of St. Thomas in 2006, and achieved his lifelong dream of becoming a medical doctor when he graduated from DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine in Tennessee.

Ted worked as a resident at St. Joseph's Hospital in St. Paul and then as a hospitalist at St. John's Hospital in Maplewood. He was loved and cared for by many with his ever-present smile and deep love of those around him. Ted was a faith-filled man of vast talents, skills and interests. He is missed by many, including the love of his life, the beautiful, kind and gentle Dr. Gretchen Vanden Berg; his parents, Mary and Rick; a brother, Alex; grandparents; family and friends; and his patients.

Thank you for continuing Ted’s legacy by supporting future pre-medical students.
