  2. Dear Lynn and Kurt, sorry for
    Your loss. I loved her. Loved growing up in our neighborhood. Wish you the best. We are in Idaho visiting our grandkids or I would be there.

  3. I’m sorry for your loss. Mrs. C was a friend and mentor for me as she hired me as a teacher at Dixie Middle in 1990. I enjoyed working with her and I enjoyed our friendship. She had many gifts as an educator. I have wonderful memories of working with her at DMS for two years before she retired. I hope that her family will be comforted and focus on the good memories that you have. My prayers are with your family.
