She taught at Norwalk High School and then accepted a position at Brien McMahon High School where she helped initiate a Team Teaching program – known as the Norwalk Plan. This innovative approach to education required developing a curriculum and materials as well as taking on duties for scheduling and grouping. As a result Marilyn published numerous articles related to “organizing a Team Teaching Program”. When she became Department Chair of the Social Studies Department she worked to institute new courses and standards and to create positive relationships among staff members.

At the same time she began to work for various universities as a Field Supervisor for Student Teachers, aiding and assisting those who desired to enter the world of education. Though she was retired she was never far from her commitment in recognizing the importance of education and the value of having the best teachers. Marilyn was a respected and admired educator. Marilyn remained very active, reading and discussing various issues and educational policies. She maintained an active life, enjoying friends and family, going out to dinner, taking in a play or watching a movie. She will be missed. Marilyn will be interred in the family plot in Ohio.

Woods, Allan Scott - Chester  
Allan Scott Woods, 85, of Chester, CT, formerly of Rowayton, died peacefully on April 24th after a gallant battle with Lewy Body Dementia. Allan grew up in Rye, NY. He was a proud graduate of Rye Country Day, Deerfield Academy and Lafayette College and served in the U.S. Coast Guard. Retiring after a 31-year marketing career with IBM/Lexmark, he focused on his long-term engagement with amateur sports, specifically men’s field hockey. For the better part of six decades he was involved with field hockey as a player and administrator. As a result, he traveled to more than 30 countries across 6 continents, including attending in a variety of official capacities, every summer Olympic Games between 1976-2004 (except the boycotted Moscow Games in 1980). In addition to being a former national team player, Allan served as President of the Field Hockey Association of America, a Director of the Pan-American Hockey Federation, a Council Member and Chairman of the Equipment Committee for the International Hockey Federation and a member of the United States Olympic Committee. Allan always tried to encourage the next generation to get involved in extra curricular activities and to create opportunities for them to do so. For this reason, he was most satisfied with the work he did serving as a Past President of the New York Amateur Sports Alliance and as a Development Organizer for the Sports and Arts in Schools Foundation, organizations that support these endeavors. Allan is survived by his wife of 49 years, the former Pamela Wallace; daughter Amanda Wasserstrom, son-in-law Eric Wasserstrom and grandsons Will and Hugo Wasserstrom of New York; and his sister Ruth Frothingham of Shelburne, Vermont. A memorial service will be held at Rye Presbyterian Church on Wednesday, May 6 at 11am.
