Dorothy Correll Quesenberry
You never forget the teachers who taught from the heart. Mrs. Quesenberry was my tenth grade English teacher at Warwick High School. She was tough but compassionate. She treated each student with dignity and kindness. I was fortunate to have known her; we were all blessed by her presence.
When Dot Quesenberry was my teacher at Warwick High, it was 1960 and she was Dorothy Correll. I remember her as a tall, slim young woman whose hair was always nicely styled! She was a no-nonsense English teacher and if I could talk to her today, I would tell her that thanks to her great teaching ability, I was able to earn a Phi Beta Kappa degree in English Literature at U.C. Berkeley and be invited into their PhD program. I have since gone on and done different things, but all of my teachers at Warwick High in those by-gone days were excellent and Dot among them gave us the love of learning that kept me going in life. I am so sorry for your loss and I assure you that "Miss Correll" had a positive impact on my future and, wish I could tell her, that I have written a book! May God bless you and your family and give you strength at this time of loss.

Sonny, I am so sorry for your loss. May God give you strength in the days ahead.
Mrs. Quesenberry was a wonderful teacher. I had her for English in both the 10th and 11th grades at Warwick High School in 1959 and 1960. I think it was in the first class that she had ever taught, she was Miss Correll then. On the first day she laid down the law, boy was she tough, you didn't dare step out of line in her class and she was like that for the entire first semester, I hated her. Then in the second semester she lightened up a little and became the "BEST" teacher that I ever had. I think if it hadn't been for her I would have never graduated from high school. I remember her like it was yesterday, she was so caring and so helpful to me I still think of her with the highest regard and respect. I ran into her about 20 years after graduation in the A & P in Denbigh and she still remembered me and my name. She was a wonderful person and know she will be missed by all. My prayers and thoughts go out to you in this time of need. May you find strength knowing what a wonderful and well liked person she was. Mr. Q. I remember you as well but I'm sure you don't remember me. May we all see her again in a better place.
Mrs. Quesenberry was my teacher in both my junior and senior years at MHS. I will never forget her - she was an inspiring woman and a wonderful teacher.
