Mary Fritsch Memorial

Dear family and friends of Mary Fritsch,

As you may know, Mary had a long career that extended over forty years in Community Unit School District #200. Mary worked in several elementary schools, however, the majority of her professional career was at Sandburg Elementary School as a 1st-grade teacher. Mary loved teaching and impacted the lives of so many students and colleagues.

Mary, her husband, and their three daughters moved to Wheaton in 1968. All three daughters attended and graduated from District #200 schools. In lieu of flowers, we appreciate your consideration of a memorial donation to the Student Excellence Foundation, District 200’s educational foundation. The mission of the Foundation is to engage the community to enrich educational experiences that empower students to reach their great potential. Thank you for supporting the students and educators to which Mary devoted her life.

If you have questions about the Student Excellence Foundation or the donation process, please email Executive Director Vicki Sebela at
