It is with great sadness that we report to you that longtime Delavan-Darien High School physical education and health teacher Deb Ludlow passed away yesterday, July 7.
Deb, who had been battling cancer, started in the district in 1980 and retired in 2012. Over those 32 years, she was always committed to the fitness of all of DDHS Comets.
She is largely responsible for writing the $1 million federal Carol M. White Physical Education Program Grant that the district received six years ago, resulting in a new physical education curriculum, updated equipment, and professional development for teachers.
We will post more information here when known.
Please feel free to post condolences, comments and memories below, or on our district Facebook page.
