In Memory of Former GFCC Director, Jean Schilawski

Our GFCC family was saddened to learn that Jean Schilawski died on September 6, 2016.

Hear these words from our current director, Sandy Duncan, about Jean Schilawski:

Jean was the first director/teacher at Greenwood Forest Children's Center. She was at GFCC for about 18 years before retiring, and then became the director of Christ the King Preschool for another 6 or 7 years.

Jean did a wonderful job of getting GFCC started with a firm foundation in curriculum and age level goals. She ran a tight ship but was always ready for a good laugh and a joke. Jean's self-given nickname was "Mean Jean," and she proudly had this on her customized license plate. Jean was one of a kind and will be missed by all.

A celebration of her life will be held at Christ the King Lutheran Church on Friday, September 9, at 4:00 pm, followed by an opportunity to visit with the family.
