Wednesday, August 14, 2019Mary Jane and I worked together at Hewitt. She was a dedicated, brilliant, and committed educator. Her focus was always on the student as a learner - whatever a student needed in order to become confident and successful, Mary Jane made it happen. If that meant a student needed private in-school math classes, then that was what was provided. Teachers were supported and given a myriad of opportunities to hone their craft through workshops and classes. The push-in leaning specialist program she established at Hewitt was invaluable - unfortunately for both teachers and students it was discontinued when she left. In addition to her excellence as an educational leader, Mary Jane was a kind and generous person. It was an honor to teach under her leadership. She was a mentor and friend and will be greatly missed.

Monday, August 12, 2019Good bye Mary Jane, my american mum. You’ve been so important to me I’ll never forget you... I admired the mother you were with your kids... I admired the bright woman you were...Recently you and me were trying to figure how to arrange a visit to debate about our lifes, our countries, our memories....sorry, but we will have to wait later....I’ve so many wonderful souvenirs of your family when I spent one year with you in Wellesley hills (sept.1972-sept.1973). At the end of that year I didn’t want to turn back to France but I had to as it was the only way for me to go to University and it was a first heartbreak to leave you ...You had adopted me and I had adopted you... Today it is another heartbreak for all your beloved ....But I know you would hate to hear us complaining...and I’m happy because I already found you shining in my sky : nice little Irish star glancing at me ❤️⭐️❤️

Monday, August 12, 2019It is with great sadness that we offer our condolences. Mary Jane was one of the most dynamic charming woman we have known. She transformed Hewitt, our daughters school, into a modern school. Just a note: Every morning she would stand in front of the school greeting the students by name and always with a smile. She has always held a special place in our family not just for her wisdom but her sense of fun. Very fondly, Nancy, Mitch and Kirsten Berken

Sunday, August 11, 2019Please know that we were a friend to her through my Uncle Jim. She was a great personality to know. We have great respect for her. Recently, my son had a double lung transplant. She was always kind and supportive. What an asset to the world. She was an inspiration to all women. I know heaven received a true angel. God Bless her!!
