Marquerite Santopietro Obituary (2023) - Legacy Remembers 02/26/2023

The Brown Play School family has lost a very special person this week. Marguerite Santopietro, aka Mrs. S. passed unexpectedly. Not only was she a former teacher, director and mentor at BPS, but also a very dear friend. I hope she realized how many lives she touched by her warm, kind heart. I feel privileged to have known her and will forever cherish my memories of the beautiful person she was. Thank you for everything Marguerite....RIP
