I had her for fifth grade, too. She was tough. I learned so much. I’m grateful that I was in her class. Thank you for not giving up on us!

My sincere condolences to Ms. Loehr’s family. She was my 5th grade teacher at St Mary’s and one teacher I have never forgotten. She held us to high standards because she knew we were capable of it. Rest In Peace

She was a terrific math teacher. I learned because I was scared to death she would call on me. A kind lady too. Sorry to see this.

I taught with Rita at St. Joseph School. She was a wonderful teacher who had high standards for her students. Her generosity and concern for others is something I will never forget. Rest In Peace.
