Community brief: Graham School secretary dies

Jan Austin, the school secretary at Graham Middle School and longtime Mountain View Whisman School District employee, died on on Dec. 30, according to a statement by the district office.

Over the years, Austin served myriad roles at both Graham and Bubb Elementary, including clerical assistant, child care supervisor and coordinator for the California English Language Development Test. She was also a frequent volunteer at Bubb, Graham and the district in general, according to district spokeswoman Shelly Hausman.

Graham Principal Kim Thompson released a statement yesterday that Austin's passing "left a hole in many hearts in our school communities, to which she dedicated so much of her time, spirit and kindness."

Services will be held at noon on Friday, Jan. 6, at the Cusimano Family Colonial Mortuary, located at 96 W. El Camino Real in Mountain View. Visitation will be held prior to service at 11 a.m.
