I loved Mrs. Dennis. I was most likely the only student that when to Shannon Elementary that didn't like butter on her famous rolls. She would save me one without butter daily!!!! That is the attention she took to each student in the school. She loved us all and we new it. She helped us all with fund raisers when we got into higher grades. Her famous catchup and mustard sauce made hotdogs the bomb and we sold thousands of them over the years!!!! We will all miss her and strive to use all the...

In 1948 l started school at Shannon in the first grade. I can still remember some of the kind, uplifting comments this precious lady would make to me. She was always smiling. And she never stopped loving all of us Shannon kids. I love you Ms Dennis. And l have to tell you one more time, you made the best bowl of soup, and the peanut butter balls you served with it, they were top of the line. Rest now, but keep watching over us!

You have fought a good fight and finished your race and are now in the presence of the LORD!
What a powerful testimony and example you have been and how many lives you've touched by your sweet spirit and reflection of GOD's love, mine being one of the many.
