For some reason I was thinking about Miss Ankney and her whereabouts. I found many articles about her. What a great lady. I had her for history class in Allegan in 1961, as did my friend April Allison. April was right, Miss Anknet got you to think for yourself. I also had her for Girls Glee Club. She got what she demanded from the girls, remembering at times throwing things to get the best out of the girls. I remembering my grandfather going to one of the school concerts and crying when the Men's Glee Club sang "When You Walk Through a Storm.". She was a great teacher. RIP Miss Ankney!

Just this morning I was telling my partner about how Pat Ankney in 1961 Allegan history class had encouraged me in critical thinking about politics, with the result that even though she was proudly a libertarian conservative, I with equal confidence adopted an anarchistic political philosophy. And I could credit her with nurturing my ability to think independently. I'm sorry that our paths never crossed again after she left Allegan, but she is still in my heart.

I learned of Miss Pat's death too late to attend the services but I want to add my sympathy and my thanks for teaching me how to be a professional, for introducing me to musical theatre (Carousel in '67?) and for life lessons that will never br forgotten. I still share stories about her 40 years later. There are few people who have that kind of impact on your life.

It is truely unfortunate that I am unable to attend the celebration services for Miss Pat. I know she enjoyed it as much as everyone else that was there. Having been through all the highs and lows of being "one of her kids" she often said " I want you guys to sing at my funeral" and I know that was accomplished, just wish I was there to join in. At the time of the celebration I was overseas and unable to get back in time. AS I reflect back fond memories of the musical Carousel and all the musical productions Miss Pat was involved with I wonder if she ever did see an actual Broadway musical! I still can see passion on her face as tears of sweat poured down her brow. She always pushed us to our unimaginable limits and made all believers. Thank you for the courage and support you instilled in me and your kids. We will never forget you.
