I loved Betty Jane as well as John & miss them both. Through the years every time I sent her a card or picture,,she would in return write me the most beautiful note. She was a dear & wonderful person!
Thankful for so many good memories,

How I loved Mrs. Heard. I had her as my 5th grade teacher in 1962, somewhere around there. She was fun, caring and made learning an adventure. She and a few other teachers are the reason I became a teacher myself. I've always remembered her and spoken about through the years. I so wish I could have seen her once more time and told her what an impact she had on my life. What a lady!
Baton Rouge has lost a proven asset in its world of education. No one was more dedicated and admired for her professional and loving approach to teaching children. On many of our travels, we met either a parent of or a student of Betty Jane. So many times we introduced ourselves as Heards only to be asked, do you know Betty Jane Heard? She left such a favorable and lasting impact on both students and parents. That is an outstanding legacy. We could not have asked for a better sister-in-law. She always remembered birthdays and anniversaries with cards she personalized with handwritten notes. Hilde and Betty Jane developed a strong bond enjoyed each other's visits and telephone conversations over the years. We will miss her but we will not forget her. With sadness and much love, Wayne & Hilde Heard
Thinking about you today. I love the picture as this is how I remember her. What a wonderful teacher she was and such a great asset to Broadmoor Elementary.
She is remembered fondly by my family.
