    Miss. Marrou was one of the kindest teachers at Hardin Jefferson. Always amazed me how smart she was. She’ll be know as the forever winner of the Trivial Pursuit game.

    I am one of Ms. Marrou ‘s former students. She was one of my favorite teachers. Sending my deepest condolences to her family.

    Janice Marrou was truly a dedicated teacher who loved history and sought to develop that same love in her students. Her knowledge extended beyond the textbook, enriching the experience of those students in her classroom. She will be long remembered and surely missed.

    Courtney Hidalgo Smith says:

    Ms. Marrou inspires me daily as her influence can often be seen in my own high school classroom. She brought history to life with the stories she shared from outside the pages of the textbook! More importantly, she was genuinely kind and cared for her students in her own quiet way. I treasure the pearl bracelet she gave me for high school graduation, the one and only time our class beat her in a game of Trivial Pursuit, and the love for history and students she taught me. My prayers are with her family.

    Pat & Don Tullos says:

    Dear Cousins,
    So sorry to hear about Janice. Prayers and thoughts to all of you.
    My best memory of her was when all of us was sitting on the floor of Grandma and Grandpa Marrou’s livingroom playing canasta.
    Peace and Blessings to you, Tommy, Betty and Glenda.
    Love, Patt
