If you were or had a child in the city of Pittsburgh in the past 50 years chances are you knew Marilee. Having received her Bachelor's degree from Penn State and Master's degree from Duquesne, Marilee was a phenomenal educator and was happiest when nurturing kids. For four decades Marilee contributed to childhood development as a nursery school teacher at the JCC, a second grade teacher and on to a math specialist with Pittsburgh Public Schools, a teacher and Educational Director at Temple Sinai Religious School, and five decades soaking up the sun all summer long as Assistant Director at J&R Day Camp.

An avid lover of all things cultural, for years Marilee supported the Civic Light Opera and the Pittsburgh Broadway Series. She loved traveling, movies, cooking, reading and the beach. Once retired, Marilee continued her own education attending OSHER classes.

In September of 2018 Marilee was awarded with a Presidential Citation from the JCC which recognizes individuals whose leadership and actions have demonstrated outstanding commitment and loving kindness to life at the JCC. In June of 2019 Marilee was honored with a bench in her name celebrating her impact on staff and campers at J&R Day Camp.

I was so sad to hear of the passing of Marilee. I was one of many young adults hired by Marilee to work at the JCC and as a camp counselor at J&R. I didn’t know Marilee well or for long but she made an Impression on me. She was so kind and always smiling. She touched so many lives and was loved by so many.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the family during this difficult time. We will miss Marilee and cherish our memories with her. She has been a very special part of our family from the start. Over the years, our visits to Pittsburgh from Florida wouldn’t have been complete without visiting with Marilee. Our kids were always made to feel like her own grandchildren. May you rest peacefully in God’s embrace.
