Condolence & Memory Journal

So sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. She was a wonderful woman and an excellent teacher. There was so much that I learned from her in her home economics class. She was the type of teacher who truly loved teaching -- it showed every day in the classroom. May she rest in peace. Keep the memories alive of her in your heart.

We lost our mother as well in January and she would have been 93. We also lost my sister in December, Beth Henner Bentheimer, who was a close friend of Marilyn's. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
