To the family of Marion Wilkerson,
It was a great disappointment I was unable to “celebrate” the life of Marion with all of you on Wednesday. She was a wonderful example to the children here at St. Catherine School. Her giving, joyful, loving spirit was apparent to all of us. How she loved reading with the little ones in the second grade. She did this in our library, —our “quiet” room! On more than one occasion I heard stifled laughter coming from the corner of the room. After awhile I didn’t have to look. I knew it was Marion doing everything in her power to keep quiet and not succeeding very well. How she loved to laugh and how this pleased the children. On Wednesday I said a sincere prayer of “Thanksgiving” that all of us were privileged to have spent time with such a wonderful woman. You must all feel the same.
With prayers from the St. Catherine students, the other Volunteers, and myself,
