I have the best memories of visiting Aunt Laura in Flint in the early 60s. Coming from Cheboygan, everything about Aunt Laura was modern, smart and sophisticated. I knew I wanted to grow up to be just like her! She lived a very good life and I know I will always remember her with great respect.
My Aunt Laura was someone I always respected and looked up to and she greatly influenced my life. I always aspired to be like her: smart, independent, strong. I will always remember her as a woman to be admired.
As many northwest Flint school children did, I also had Mrs. Vieu as a teacher at Selby and she made quite an impression on me. We forget the names of many of our teachers but she is one who will always live in our hearts and mind. My sympathy to Mrs. Vieu's family.
Laura was my training teacher from UM/Flint's co-op program. I have so many fond memories of how she helped me begin my teaching career. We would stay in touch through Christmas cards throughout my 42 years teaching and even after I retired. I wish I could have told her this year, that I was finally going to be a grandmother X2, she would have been so excited for me.
Mrs. Vieu was my math teacher at Selby too.
