Brian and Drew, I have met you both (although a long time ago) at Nanny's Thanksgivings in Corsicana. I am sure we are some distant cousins of some kind. Nanny was my Grandmother. Your mom was always so very sweet. I always had so much in common with your mom and dad. I taught school for 30 years (mostly band...ended my career as Librarian). My husband was in education for 35 years. I also love to cook and sew...we always had lots to talk about. This morning, I am making your mom's "Strawberry Jello Salad" for our family Easter lunch tomorrow. I make it at Christmas and Easter every year. I think of your mom every time and will continue to do so. Just wanted to let you both know I am so sorry for your loss...it was a loss for everyone. Melinda (Murphy) Morris

My family has had many losses this year and it has been tough. To hear about Mrs. Dubiski was very heartbreaking. Mrs. Dubiski was a great teacher and human being. I had her for home economics class back in 7th and 8th grade at Jackson. It was 1992-1993 at the time. Flash forward to several years and she met my kids in elementary school, middle school then high school. They are now 17 and 20 years. She told me she remembered my face and last name :) imagine that after 20+ years. I’ll always remember her sweet smile and welcoming voice, my condolences to the family. I’ll always miss her dearly. May she Rest In Peace.

Monica was a sweet, caring Sigma Kappa sister. I admired her so much! I enjoyed spending time with her during our fun college years at Southeastern Oklahoma State University and at alumni homecoming parade watch gatherings in my home. She was so special and very much loved. Many will miss her. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.

I've known Marsha & Monica since Hyde Park. We grew up in the same neighborhood. Monica was ALWAYS sweet, nice, kind, quiet, a pleasure to be around. I offer many prayers for her & her family. What a sweet person.

Monica could light up a room with that smile and those kind eyes when she listened made you feel she was listening with her heart as well as her ears. Having taught with her, vacationed with her, and been in several Bible Studies with her, we often shared museum visits and long walks with a variety of topics. She was so intelligent and loved new adventures and learning new things. But what really brought a smile to that beautiful face was talking about family. She would share all things wonderful about her aunts, cousins, sister, nephew, son Brian, and especially Drew and Rebecca. Yes, she was loved and she loved!! She is sorely missed but well and whole and rejoicing with our Lord. Praises for that and for what she brought into my life.

Monica was always a loving and caring person. I was fortunate to spend my years at Southeastern in Sigma Kappa with Monica. She will be dearly missed.

Monica was a dear sister of Sigma Kappa to me & many others. I feel so blessed to have had that bond with her! We reconnected a few years ago & it was as though the twenty-something years between just melted away. We laughed, stayed up late, giggled, & told so many silly stories! SOSU Homecoming was a fantastic time for me because Monica picked me up as I flew in to Dallas to make it to Durant.
Several of us again met in OKC this past fall & I will always cherish that time we all had with Monica! Her sparkling smile was flashing to be with us!
My thoughts & prayers are with you, dearest family. Monica is in the arms of our Lord. May you feel His arms around you to comfort you in this time of sorrow.
A Sigma Kappa sister,

Dear Marsha, Drew, Brian, and all Monica’s family, my sincere sympathy during such a difficult time. Monica was such a special friend to my daughters, Debbie and Cindy. What a team! Everyone wanted to be her best friend. Loved the many times they spent together at our home. I am blessed to have known her and to have been her friend. She was loved as family. Prayers for you all.
