    Mrs zurek was one of my favorite teachers. She is the reason I am pushing to have my 4 children in catholic school. She was a gentle heart who knew how to get what she wanted out of her students and we felt we let her down when doing things that were not to her standards. As an adult I looked forward to running into her at church and am very sorry for all of her family. I am sure she is happy to back with husband and will wait patiently to seeing all of you again. Truly sorry for your loss.
