I was just telling someone about her birthday kiss tradition a few weeks ago. I had her for homeroom and science in 4th grade and my memories are vivid because of the passion she had for her work- for her students. She will be remembered fondly by her students and friends. My prayers go out to those who knew her best.
My dearest friend i am deeply saddened, no words to express how sorry i am not to come see you lately
Misha and i we are both heart broken over the news
You will be greatly missed. Valley will be empty for me without you Galina & Misha
Aneda was a longtime friend and co-worker. She always supported me in all that I did at Fairview. Janet and I, and our kids who she taught and loved, are so sad that she is no longer with us.
You will be deeply missed...God bless you!

It is with great sadness that I write this - as I just learned my first school teacher ANEDA KAPLAN passed away today. She was one of THE MOST FABULOUS women I ever had the privilege to know and I was lucky enough to have had her in Kindergarten, 2nd and 4th grades. She was flamboyant and loud and was known to smother her students in kisses from lips with freshly applied lipstick. When you got a 100 on a test it was not stamped with a sticker but with her own bright red lips! And if it was your birthday, you were covered and everybody knew! She had a fragrance that was unmistakable - Paloma Picasso perfume mixed with coffee, lipstick, and a touch of cigarette - it was totally her. She was one of a kind and probably the most fun teacher I had. She always took care of each of us as if we were her own kids, as she had none of her own. I was fortunate enough to have continued my friendship with her after I gradated from college, where I was proud to show her my fashion collections and artwork and she was always proud of me through the years. I just wish I was able to keep in better touch with her - but - her kisses will live on in my mind forever!
Rest in Peace Ms. Kaplan
