I was an AFS exchange student from Australia in Mrs Claders' Home Room class for my year 73/74 at New Trier. She ensured I felt welcome and included, as she did all her girls. Regular social gatherings at her home, recipes (peanut butter yummies was a favourite), her kindness and interest in us all was very special. I continued to correspond with her until recently and visited her twice over the years when I was in Wilmette. 99 years! Wow! Vale Mrs Clader.
