Carol Jean Wehrwein Thomas (1929-2017)

MEMORIES OF CAROL JEAN WEHRWEIN THOMAS BY EILEEN DOWER (retired media specialist, Montgomery County Public Schools; Second Wednesday Book Club)

Carol and I had much in common–-we both loved to read and to teach. We first met as media specialists working for MCPS in high school libraries. We were both active in our professional organization.

Carol also worked part-time at Montgomery College, teaching foreign students the art of pronunciation. She was uniquely qualified for this position as her own speech was articulate and precise--a model to emulate!

She discovered that my previous teaching experience included instructing ESOL students in various places--East Africa, New York city, and Montgomery County adult education system. She then introduced me to the Montgomery College administrator, who hired me to teach ESOL part-time at night and on Saturday. Thanks to Carol!

Another fond memory of Carol occurred when we retired librarians started our "Second Wednesday Book Club." She declared at the start: “I don’t read fiction!”

When her turn came to choose a monthly book and serve lunch, she chose "The Professor and the Madman," by Simon Winchester. A work of historical fiction!! We ALL agreed it was one of the best reads that we had ever had!!

Carol was a valuable member of our book club and a loyal friend. I shall miss her!
