I remember going to Business Professionals of America up in Green Bay and she got so mad at me because I wasn’t in my room when she checked on me and she was going to call the school and I was going to get in trouble. Oops

She was also my Mock trial advisor and started a lifelong love of law for me that has now passed on to my daughter.

I remember Mrs. Smith fondly from Typing Class and Mock Trial at Assumption. She was firm, but kind and always treated everyone fairly. My condolences to the family. She was a gem. May God grant her eternal rest.

Mrs. Smith was one of my favorite high school teachers. From typing...yes, we used typewriters then, to accounting...I felt I had the BEST teacher ever! I was so well prepared for college because of her talent for teaching. Always a huge smile and obvious care for her students, she touched my life forever. Rest in Peace Mrs. Smith, thank you and may you watch over me❤
