Marilyn Louise Soltis

To the Soltis family, my most sincere condolences on your loss. Marilyn (Miss Soltis) was my first grade teacher at St. Raphael in 1975, which may have been her first year of teaching. She was solely responsible for teaching me how to read, write, and add 2+2. She took a keen interest in me individually, and in fact I would say that she set the tone for my entire education, which ultimately included both undergraduate and graduate degrees. My parents took a strong liking to her as well, to the point where she stayed with me at our house when they took vacations (which deepened our bond even further). Though we moved away from Bay Village in 1980, I have thought of her positive influence on me many times over the years. I'm sure that I was not the only one who benefitted from her caring and kindness as a person, as well as her passion for teaching. I'm sorry that it took her passing for me to be able to say these things about her, and I regret not being able to tell her in person. May she rest in peace.
