Marion You will always be remembered for your great talent, generosity, kindness and ability to bring out the best in everyone of your students. The world lost a great leader. Will always remember the great lunch’s Kristen my daughter your student had with you.

When I started taking piano lessons at age 7 (before transitioning to Ms. Zarzeczna), I told myself I would never make a mistake. That was the first of many mistakes I made as a piano student. Ms. Zarzeczna taught me that my mistakes give me information on what and how to practice. A mistake is not a failure; it makes me better. A mistake is not shameful; it is a gift.

Ms. Zarzeczna was my piano teacher every Thursday at 4pm for 7 years. She was kind, wonderful, patient and someone who touched my life in so many ways. All of my recital pieces are still a cherished part of my life. God bless her as I thought of her and her brother Joe often.

My deepest condolences to her family. Miss Zarzeczna was the kindest and most patient teacher I ever had. She was never cross when I didn't understand something and would always repeat herself with incredible patience. She had a profound impact on me, instilling in me a love for music. She was very passionate about music and was an amazing teacher, musician and pianist. I will miss her a lot and she will forever hold a special place in my heart. May she rest in peace.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

Condolences to the family. Marion was a great teacher, with devotion to her work and immense patience and dedication for her students.

From the Sunday group rehearsals in the weeks leading up to the yearly recitals in Trinity Cathedral and various competitions, to the regular lessons each week she demonstrated a great desire for her students to achieve all they could musically and mature into responsible adults.

She will be missed.

Marion was a wonderful Teacher and a lovely Lady. May she Rest In Peace. My condolences to her a Family.
