Thank you for reaching out to me - we sadly were unable to have a funeral and didn’t post an obituary. We planned to do it on her birthday in December thinking that the virus would be a lot better and we could have a memorial, however that wasn’t the case. I think on her one year anniversary of her death we will try to have a celebration of life and post the obituary. It all happened in late May and was a very hard time for the family to organize anything. She saw me as the daughter she never had and we were very close - I cleaned her apartment and kept a lot of her belongings but I moved to intense military training (coast guard OCS) the next month and just graduated. Her friend, Debby Schenk also helped with everything but she is suffering with cancer in Kansas City. So when the time comes we will have a celebration of life for her, as for now, I just try to remember the good memories and my goofy, hippy aunt for the supportive, happy person she was.

With love Mariya

Had her in math class and as a student aide in my office. It is REALLY sad for a teacher to outlive his students!!!!
