Condolence & Memory Journal

Condolences to the Zolper family. Thoughts are with you. I remember Mrs. Zolper at Smith School when she worked in the learning center. Nice lady! When I graduated from high school, I volunteered with her and Mr. Karnosak (art teacher). She gave me a mug for Christmas, which I still have 28 years later.

Mary Lou was a friend and a fellow teacher at Smith School for 7 yers.. She was the learning center director, and friendly and helpful to me as a new teacher. Later in my career, I worked with Doug as a fellow prinicipal. They were both very special people, and I am greatful I had the opportunity to know them.

I am so sorry to hear this news. Mary Lou was a mentor and a friend to me when I started my career at Smith School. She was an outstanding educator that will be missed. May she rest in eternal peace.
