Nick and Sarah, we’re so sorry to hear of Marianne’s passing. We hope you and all her friends and family are able to find some consolation in the coming days as you gather to remember your mother and the legacy she has left. Teaching, as you both well know, is a career of incredible self giving, and one can only catch glimpses of the impacts during our lifetimes. But with all her years of service the impacts of your mother’s life and work will continue to ripple outward for generations. Even though I never had your mom as a teacher in the classroom, my life is better for having known her through you and your family. May she rest in peace and may God grant you all comfort in the coming days and weeks. – Sam Gaetz
Please accept my dearest sympathy as I was one of the million kids that Marianne had as she was one of the easiest people to talk to and always had a smile on her face
