  1. Although I never had her as a student, I do remember the many times she joined our family celebrations with Uncle Tom and Aunt Marguerite, and I remember what a real southern lady she was. And then, as a high school student, passing her in the hallways, I was always proud that she recognized me and spoke. She was always gracious and had a way of making us youngsters feel good. All who knew her are better people because of her.
