  1. So sorry to learn of the passing of Marilee. She was a beautiful woman inside and out and always had a sweet smile on her face. The students whose lives she touched should feel very fortunate to have had her as their second grade teacher! I thoroughly enjoyed teaching with her at Highland Park School !
    Rest In Peace, Marilee! You will be missed!
