OPEN LETTER TO THE COLLEGE FROM A SON.

Good Morning All,

I am very saddened to say that my Mother, Mary Usher, passed away at her home in Hilliard, Ohio on Thursday, April 15th. As you are very well aware, Mary spent decades teaching at CSCC and completed 90+ quarters with the institution before leaving. I can't even begin the fathom the number of students, faculty and staff that Mary has touched over the years. Countless thousands, to be sure. I wouldn't even know where to begin.

There will be two viewings held at Tidd Funeral Home in Old Hilliard. The address is 5265 Norwich Street, Hilliard, OH 43026-1424 and the telephone number is (614) 876-1722. The viewings will be from 2p-4p and 6p-8p. On the following day, Tuesday, April 20th, there will be a funeral service for her at Tidd Funeral Home at 1:00pm followed by procession and burial at Wesley Chapel Cemetery. Her obituary is printed in the Columbus Dispatch and appeared both yesterday and today.

Would you please, for Mary, forward this notice to all the faculty and staff at CSCC in the hopes that the information will stretch far and wide, and reach as many people as possible? My hope is that all who knew Mary well and would like to pay final respects will be able to get the information in time to be able to attend and/or send their condolences to her partner and husband of 36 years, Kent Usher.

Mary had so much fun with (and had so many fond memories of her time spent with) her students and colleagues at CSCC. She always spoke highly of you and considered you a great friend. She never had a sharp word for anyone except students that interrupted her during dictation :) Thank you for your help. It is appreciated more than you will ever know!

God Bless,

Mark Usher
Mary Usher's First Born Son
