I would like to know where and how her children are; also Edward. She and Charlotte Salerno were best friends through our Creighton years. I wish we could talk by phone now!

What a blessing it was to have Mrs. Bremmer as a teacher at Ralston Middle School. She touched my life and is a big part of my best middle school memories. What seems like 100's of years gone by, I still find myself talking about "my" middle school English teacher, Mrs. Bremmer! I hope she knew how special she was and how many students she inspired!

Edward and Cathy--I am so sorry to hear about Marylyn's death. She was a gem, as a person, and as a Standardized Patient at University of Nebraska Medical Center. She was "student friendly" making kind and helpful contributions to student interpersonal skills. More importantly she was loving and dear to all who knew her.
She will leave a hole in many lives, including mine.

She was my teacher and my dear and great friend. I would not be the writer I am today or the person I am today without her. A light has gone out of the world.

One of my all-time favorite teachers. I'll never forget what she said on the first day of Middle School: "I'm here to make your lives miserable." In reality, she made everything fun. Thank you Mrs. B. we will miss you.

I was so sorry to hear of Mrs. Bremmer's passing. I was lucky enough not only to have had her as my teacher but also work with her in 'Grease' at the Ralston Community Theatre. What a wonderful teacher! She will be greatly missed.
