St. Raphael Catholic School Dedicates Play Structure to Joyce Zemke

May 22, 2008 - On Wednesday, May 28, 2008 at 11:30 a.m., St. Raphael Catholic School will be dedicating its new play structure to Joyce Zemke (a previous teacher at the school from 1975 to 1985). Mrs. Zemke spent her entire teaching career at St. Raphael Catholic School under the leadership of then principal Mr. Bob Fera. Mrs. Zemke was a loving, dedicated teacher who gave of herself tirelessly and was especially gifted with the exceptional students. A plaque remains in St. Raphael’s Catholic School which is dedicated to her memory.

Mrs. Zemke and her husband Sherman, directed (through Mr. Fera) that a trust fund be set up at the school to assist the school and its students with equipment, upgrades, and supplies after their passing. This year, the school decided to direct some of the funds for what Joyce Zemke had intended and created a beautiful play structure in the primary yard with a dedication board depicting, The Joyce Zemke Play Structure. The play structure was completed in the fall and the school is now ready for the official dedication ceremony.
