"Auntie Marilyn" is an amazing woman. I have many fond memories of visiting her in the summer. We would always go into Chicago and it was with Aunt Marilyn that I got my big city cultural experiences. We went to amazing museums, musicals, restaurants and shopping. My first and forever favorite musical is Les Miserables that we saw together. She was an amazing caregiver to her mother. She will be missed.

Marilyn was my summer school roommate at the University of Illinois and close friend. She was my daughter Anne's Godmother. We shared many good times together and went to Greece together. She is a very special person who is now in a better place. Her faith and loving nature will always be remembered. May she rest in peace.

Miss Vonch was a rare breed of teacher - knowledgeable, astute, and a classy lady. They surely don't make them like her any more. Here is to one fine English teacher - may you rest in eternal peace.

Ms. Vonch was a wonderful teacher. She certainly would listen to you when you were having a problem with your school assignments and always helped out though she did make sure you were able to figure something out on your own. She will be missed. R.I.P and God Bless you.
