A TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE
Joe Gubbins was a member of the original faculty when Marian opened in 1959. He was at
Marian for six years and during that time he taught English and Religion. He also wore many different
hats as the first Head Basketball Coach, Dean of Discipline, Dean of Studies, Asst. Football Coach,
Golf Coach, etc. Joe made lifetime friends while at Marian and now resides in Phoenix where he is
the Principal and Academic Director at Spring Ridge Academy.
Lisa (Huemann) Coté ’75, Johnsburg, is always surprised by Marian connections. She works
as a hairdresser for special needs clients and the elderly. While cutting hair at The Fountains in Crystal
Lake for Joe Vorisek, he related his connection to Marian. In 1977 while living at the Community
Living Facility for the Handicapped (originally the Marian convent and now the Annex), Joe asked
the track coach Lou Hartlieb if he could run with the team. Lou reluctantly agreed. One day the team
was told to run five miles up Raffle Road to Ware Road, to 47 and 120. Several of the players took
the short cut on St. John’s Road but Joe with cerebral palsy stayed with the original plan. Joe would
never cheat on Coach Hartlieb.

The 2009-10 Annual Fund Appeal kicks off in September with early bird letters to past donors. Co-General
Chairpersons Kim and Joe ’80 Doherty, McHenry, and Barb and John Weiler, Lake In The Hills, will be looking
for volunteers to man the phone lines during the six-night phonathon in October. If you can help, please call the Development Office at 815-

Please give careful consideration to your participation and respond generously as we all work together to raise $125,000 for the school. Monies
raised from the Annual Fund Appeal are used for financial assistance for qualifying families. With the current economy, the need is even greater
for financial aid. Any gift will be greatly appreciated.

after her husband, David, needed brain surgery, which left him disabled. Son
Nolan was struggling as a freshman in their local school when a Marian parent
suggested Deirdre look into Marian’s financial aid and work study program.
Only a month into Nolan’s sophomore year at Marian, Deirdre saw many posi-
tive changes. “A faith-based education is one that to me is priceless. It helps us
understand why bad things happen to good people. God does indeed have a plan
