Marion Hammer, long-time teacher in Northport-East Northport UFSD died yesterday at the age of 92. A resident of Northport, NY for more than 30 years, she taught second and third grades, remedial reading, and special education in the Northport-East Northport and Elwood schools for more than twenty of those years.

In retirement, she and her late husband relocated to the Eastern Shore of Virginia, where they were active in Naomi Makemie Presbyterian Church and in the Eastern Shore Yacht and Country Club. In addition, Marion served as a volunteer literacy tutor one of whose students was named Virginia Adult Learner of the Year.  Later, they relocated again to Rogue Valley Manor, a retirement community in Medford, OR.
