JoAnn Wexler Memorial Fund
It is with profound sadness and grief that we share the news that longtime Bernard Zell fourth grade teacher, JoAnn Wexler, passed away on the morning of July 10.
A beloved member of our school community for over 40 years, JoAnn was recently honored at our faculty appreciation event, where she was described by her colleagues as “a once in a lifetime educator” who will be remembered as “the most devoted, most incredible fourth grade teacher any child could ever hope to have.”
Ms. Wex’s impact on our school community and the hundreds of young people she taught is immense. May her friends and family find comfort amongst the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem, and may her memory be for a blessing.
JoAnn’s family has established the JoAnn Wexler Memorial Fund in her memory. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to this fund that will support faculty and student learning for generations to come. Any messages included with donations will be shared with her family. A memorial service will be held this fall to honor Ms. Wex; additional details will be forthcoming.
