DEARBORN -- As a teacher, Virginia Bochenek wanted to make sure the
first interaction with science for her students was a memorable one.
Stuffed birds and an aquarium filled her classroom, while plants and
small trees were always inside the adjacent green house. Those things helped
many of her students enjoy science and accept her style of teaching, her
daughter Katherine Youngheim said.
Mrs. Bochenek simply wanted to make science fun.
"Her enthusiasm spilled over into everything," Youngheim said. "She
was a very hands-on teacher. They were always doing things (in the classroom).
She was a good teacher who was very popular with her students."
Mrs. Bochenek, a former Detroit Public Schools science teacher, died
of a heart attack on Monday, Sept. 25, 2000 at the Henry Ford Village in
Dearborn. She was 84.
Upon graduation from the University of Michigan, Mrs. Bochenek spent
more than 30 years as a science teacher at Ann Arbor Trail and Roosevelt
elementary schools in Detroit.
Many of her accomplishments were reflected by the numerous Christmas
cards she received from her former students.
Mrs. Bochenek was a member of the Michigan Antique Button Collecting
Club and the Dancing Cuckoos, an international Laurel and Hardy Fan Club.
She also earned a pilot's license in the 1940s.
