In memory of

Mark Bistline

Mark Bistline, Susan’s adoring husband and parent of Daisy in 7th grade, James in 8th, and Bennett ’03,  passed away on Friday, November 13 of brain cancer.

Mark was brilliant and charming, an extraordinary story-teller and gifted artist. Under Mark’s leadership, resolve, and creativity, Pennfield secured our permanent home on Little Slocum Farm. Mark was elected to the Pennfield Board of Trustees in 1995, served as Vice-Chair in 1999, and Chair from 2000-2004.

The Bistline Family has asked that, in lieu of flowers, donations to The Pennfield School can be made in Mark’s honor.  The Pennfield School community will forever be grateful to Mark for his inspirational and distinguished leadership.
