It is with a heavy heart that we share the news of the passing of Marlyn Peeples on Wednesday, April 22nd. Mrs. Peeples has worked in our office for over 20 years, in addition to being an STA parent and grandparent. She loved our school, and she was loved by countless people in our school community. We will all miss her.
On Monday, April 27th, Mr. Gallo and Ms. Monahan discussed this news with our students during their weekly Motivation Monday meeting. The video of this meeting can be accessed by using this link: Motivation Monday – April 27, 2020.
The services for Mrs. Peeples will be held on Monday, May 4th. There will be a visitation from 10:00-11:00 am at Liberty Temple Church of God on 5230 S. Halsted. Only 10 people will be allowed in the room at a time to comply with social distancing guidelines. Due to COVID-19, the service will be live streamed from 11:00 am – 12:00 pm and can be accessed by using this link: Services for Mrs. Peeples.
We also invite you to virtually participate in 3 upcoming Masses that will be said in her memory. These will be streamed on the St. Thomas the Apostle Parish Facebook page at the following times: Sunday, May 3rd at 10 am, Friday, May 8th at 9 am and Friday, May 15th at 9 am.
We will communicate our plans for remembering Mrs. Peeples upon our return to school as soon as we know more information. Please continue to keep Mrs. Peeples’ family in your prayers.
