I am very saddened by Marvin's passing. She was so welcoming when I first came to Spotswood, introducing me to everyone. She was a good friend and was always helpful when she could. I loved seeing her smile and hearing her encouraging words. She was always positive and encouraging.
She will be missed a lot!

Marvin was the heart of our ESL community. When she came to my door to get her students for lessons, those children lit up like Christmas trees! Marvin was an unbelievable teacher - inspiring and encouraging, not just her students, but teachers as well. I will so miss her sweet, warm smile and her vibrant spirit. Marvin will always be unforgettable in the hearts of all those she touched. I know that when Marvin let go another bright star shined in the Heavens.

Marvin could rock an outfit! A total fashionista!

I am so very sorry to hear of Marvin's passing. She was a beautiful woman, inside and out. We taught together at Cedar Forest, and she was my hallway "neighbor." Marvin was always so thoughtful and kind, and the students all loved her. This is a picture of Marvin with my two children. It is from cinco de mayo 2009, a fantastic event which she organized for our school. The kids all had a great time learning songs and dances, and Marvin invited a mariachi band to play for the event! My daughter is now a Spanish major in college and is thankful to have had Señora Srivastava as one of her first teachers! I am thankful to be able to call Marvin my friend and will miss her dearly. You have my deepest condolences.

I am very shocked about the passing of such a wonderful person, Marvin or Ms. Srivastava as I often call her, who has left all of us heartbroken. She was a sunshine in the midst of a gloomy day when we were both working at Cedar Forest elementary school. She has a very positive personality that radiates to all people around her, especially me! Ms. Srivastava and Mukesh were very supportive of my family during our Cedar forest times......I will never forget that!
I know that you will be one of God's angels watching all of us down here! Eternal Peace my dear friend........your kind-soul will be remembered! Love, Valle Family

QUERIDA HERMANITA, ¿POR QUÉ HICISTE LAS COSAS QUE DIOS TE ENCOMENDÓ TAN RÁPIDO?
FUISTE UN EJEMPLO EN ESTA VIDA, SIEMPRÉ TE ADMIRÉ. RECUERDO CUANDO HABLÁBAMOS POR TELÉFONO, SIEMPRE TE HACÍA REÍR AL RECORDAR LAS COSAS QUE HACÍAMOS DE NIÑOS. ESOS RECUERDOS COMO HERMANO MAYOR, QUE TENGO DE TODOS UDS MIS HERMANOS, SIEMPRE VAN A ESTAR CONMIGO.
NOSOTROS SOMOS PEREGRINOS EN ESTA TIERRA NUESTRA CIUDADANÍA ESTÁ EN LOS CIELOS, ALLÁ TE VOY A ENCONTRAR HERMANITA.
