Miss Koursaros was my 4th grade teacher. I remember well our field trips, school plays and her lessons on local history. I'm from a family of 9 children, 8 of us had Miss K as our teacher. She came to all our graduation ceremonies. I was saddened to hear of her passing. Keep her memories close to your hearts forever.

My deepest sympathies to the Koursaros family. Nona (Mary) will be greatly missed. She was a kind, loving, and generous person. She always made me feel like part of the family. I enjoyed having conversations with her and she always had a smile for me. May her memory be eternal. I love you all.
