I was lucky enough to work many years with Mary Jo at Nicolet Elementary School. She was always helpful and pleasant. I appreciated this immensely and it truly made my job as school nurse much easier. I enjoyed our talks as well. She was very proud of her family and enjoyed her time spent at her cottage. My condolences to all her family and friends.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Mary Jo was the first person we met when we visited the school after moving to Menasha, and her loving smile and warm welcome made us feel immediately at home. All three of my children knew Mrs. Peil loved them and they loved her. We are so thankful to have had the opportunity to know her. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Peil family and her Jefferson/Nicolet family too.

My condolences on the loss of a truly wonderful person. I had the honor of working with Mary Jo in my very first administrative job as the Principal of Nicolet Elementary School. She was a great support to me and was a big reason that we had a successful transition. I am so sorry for your loss and will keep your family in my thoughts and prayers

The kindest, the sweetest, the smile that lights up a room. Those are my memories of Mary Jo. My heart is broken and filled with sadness at the loss of my friend and fellow co-worker. It's so difficult to try and make sense of it all. May those in Mary Jo's family find peace and comfort in knowing she made a difference in everyone's lives that she touched and that she will not be forgotten. Fly with angels Mary Jo.

We were so blessed to have known Mary Jo. She was always so kind and loving towards our daughter and we would laugh every time I walked in the office because she knew it was the end of the day. She was an angel here on earth and now in heaven. She will be missed.

I would like to extend a comforting word during this extremely difficult time. You have lost a real special person in your life. Mary touched everyone she came in contact with. Her smile, a welcoming greating, a compassion for Al and her children. Mary loves all of you. She made everyone welcome. I know it is hard to understands God's work, but I'm sure Mary was chosen for a very special purpose. Put a smile on your face. Mom, Honey is watching. There is no one with a smile as great as hers. Remember, the next time a tear comes to your eye and you find yourself thinking of Mom or Honey. turn that tear into a smile. That's Mary stopping by, just to say Hi and checking up on you. God bless all of you. You're all in my prayers.
Bridget left a message on June 19, 2012:
Mrs. Peil greeted each of my kids with a smile, hug and sticker every time we came through the office at Nicolet or Jefferson. We recently had a reason to stop in as a family and I am so grateful that we all got to see each other one last time. She was just the sweetest person and we will miss her dearly. Stopping in to the school office just won't be the same without her. Rest in Peace, Mrs. Peil, we love you!
Lisa left a message on June 19, 2012:
My condolences go to the family. I worked with Mary Jo for many years at Nicolet. She was the sweetest, most thoughtful person who I respected tremendously. I often came to her for "mom" advice. Her family meant the world to her. She will be sorely missed.
