Coworkers remember their colleague Erin Ilari

BEAUMONT-By: Leslie Rangel

Late this afternoon, the Beaumont School District released a statement about the teacher.

The principal at Bingman Head Start in Beaumont says Ilari was a great teacher and a beloved mother and wife.

We visited Ilari's home and her husband gave us this picture.

He didn't go on camera, but did tell us he was honored by the support from her co-workers at Bingman Head Start where she taught.

We spoke with several co-workers and friends who echo thoughts about the legacy this teacher left behind.

"She was such an exceptional teacher and we thought so highly of her," Jill Castetter, one of her co-workers says. 

Kelly Simon was her assistant, "she did everything she possibly could and then some and she didn't think it was good enough." 

Outside the school flags were at half staff.

"We're a great family at Bingman, doesn't matter what's going on in our own life, we always reach out to each other," Dawn Clary her cousin and co-worker says.  

Her coworkers, her friends, gathered together to remember the person they describe as their angel.

"She's just a loveable person, it doesn't matter if your 4 years old," Simon said. 

"She could lighten your day, she always had a smile on her face in good times and hard times," Castetter says. 

They say anyone who walked her path became part of her family.

"She would always brighten our day by telling us something hilarious," Clary said. 

Monday evening, Erin Ilari died leaving behind her husband and two children.

"There wasn't a moment in any day that she wouldn't mention her babies," Clary remembers.

Her teacher friends say her family was her life and they'll always remember her.

"Yesterday it was like a part of me was missing because I didn't get that wave and it took me back a couple of steps," Clary said. 

"I don't think we'll ever get over it, I think we'll get through it, but I don't think we'll ever get over it," Suellen Ener another co-worker says. 

Funeral arrangements are set at Broussard's on Major Drive. 

Visitation is Thursday from five until eight in the evening. 

Her funeral services are Friday morning at ten.
