I had Mrs. Conner in ninth grade for both Rights and Responsibilities and then World Studies. Her classes inspired me to take more history classes over the years.
I did not know Mrs. Conner, but I am privileged to be the minister that will help to lay her body to rest in her hometown of Tupelo, MS today, June 5, 2014 at 4:30 pm. It is a blessing to read these comments and to be even a small part of her passing on to be with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I look forward to meeting her with Him in the clouds! (1 Thess. 4:13-18)
Rebecca was my mother's first cousin. Her name is Tina Ritter King of Philadelphia, MS. She called Rebecca today to catch up only to find that Rebecca passed away. I remember Rebecca as a fun loving cousin and she will be missed by our family.
On stressful days at South Miami Middle, Becky and I would sit outside her office and pretend we were in Paris, enjoying the view. She added comfort to my life.
Our dear Ms. Conner -- our counselor at Shenandoah Junior HS; have often thought of her understanding and gentle manner. May she rest in peace.
What a great lady, Bible teacher and dear friend. I will always remember her "verbal punctuation" skit she performed at Shenandoah. Heaven gained a wonderful soul!
Few individuals express in their lifetime the pure love of Jesus with as much grace, and strength of mind, and wit, and intelligence as has our beloved Rebecca. She will be remembered with the greatest fondness.
