We are saddened to inform you of a death in the Ray-Pec family. Deborah Hale, a study skills teacher at Ray-Pec High School, passed away this morning.
Mrs. Hale experienced a medical emergency in the school before the start of classes. Emergency medical personnel responded and transported her to the hospital, where she later died. This was Mrs. Hale’s 18th year teaching in the Ray-Pec School District. Counselors are available to meet with staff and students, as needed.
A memorial gathering is scheduled for 2 p.m. Monday, Dec. 23, at the Atkinson Funeral Home, 600 W. Wall St., Harrisonville. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions to the Raymore-Peculiar Public School Foundation for a scholarship.
