June 13, 1960 – April 16, 2014
SOUTH BEND – Remie Constable, 53, died peacefully at home on April 16. A native of Boston, Remie was the daughter of the late Evhy (Young) Constable and of Giles Constable. She moved to South Bend in 1995 to take up a position as a professor of medieval history at the University of Notre Dame, where since 2008 she has been the Robert M. Conway Director of the Medieval Institute. Remie was a scholar of international reputation in her field, yet she wore her learning lightly and was always approachable for students and colleagues and for those she got to know socially or through her hobby of horseback riding. She is survived by her husband Matthew Bell and sons Owen and Sam, by her father Giles and stepmother Patricia Woolf of Princeton, NJ, and by her brother John of Fresno, CA.
