My condolences to all of the family. I remember Mrs Okun being a homeroom mother and always bringing treats. She was a beautiful lady and a real sweetheart. She has fought the fight. It is her turn for rest and peace. She will be missed by many, but has reached her glory. Fly high Mrs Okun!

A great friend and neighbor. I babysat all the boys during my teen years. Doodle helped me with book reports and provided subjects for me to write poems for school assignmentstarts. A wonderful person to know & love.
