A wonderful, energetic, and classy lady who was loved and adored by all her students. I still have vivid memories of first grade and her patience helping me learn to read. A true reason why Amador County was a great place to grow up.
I remember Jane with great fondness. She was both a wonderful teacher and part of the community. For decades after I left her classroom, when I would see her somewhere, she always spoke. She always remembered who I was and had a wonderful little story about something I said or did while in her class. Who can forget the bright red lipstick, a trademark. I will always have a fond, special place of remembrance in my heart for you Jane.
She had such a love and passion to teach all the children in our community. I spent so many years working by her side. She will be missed by so many, but the memories she has given to so many children will live on for many years.
Mrs. Gillick was my favorite grade school teacher in the 1950's. I never forgot how friendly and helpful she was. I bumped into her at the store in Pine Grove about 10-15 years ago and we had a good chat. I had heard that she was a pilot and we talked about flying. I have been a pilot since 1969 and she knew that I have been flying in Alaska for many years and asked lots of questions. She was still so enthusiastic about aviation and life in general. It was so good to see her again.
Hi to Suzanne and John who I remember. John do you remember the hunting trip to Nevada with the Foyil boys?
Your mother was a great person that will be missed by all.
