Not sure what to say?

It is hard to find words for someone who impacts your life as greatly as Mrs. Wacker has. As a teacher myself, I try each day to cultivate the kind of classroom that she did. She is one of my greatest heroes and role models.

Every day my 7th and 8th grade science class sat in awe of this woman who was so incredibly cool, down to earth, holy, fascinating, adventurous, intelligent, funny, virtuous, courageous, prayerful, joyful, strong, and wise. She had so many things she...

I was a student of Mrs. Wacker at Nativity. She was an amazing teacher. She pushed her students to do their best both in and out of the classroom. Her science lessons - dissecting worms and frogs and looking at microorganisms under the microscope will always be positive memories for me.
Please accept my most heartfelt sympathies for your loss.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Mrs. Wackers family. I had her as a teacher for science and homeroom at nativity. She has left an everlasting impression on me. She was proud of her faith and was not afraid to share it with her students. She left a great love of science with us. I credit her for many memories and for molding me into the person i am today. Thank you for the great memories and the wonderful gift of teaching that you shared and blessed me with the privilage of experiencing

Caroline & Family: Praised be Jesus Christ for the amazing life of your mother, a most gifted and giving human being. These brief testimonials given by her former students are but a smattering of the immense gratitude that literally thousands of students have for this great person in their lives. Our children who had her for Science classes at Nativity of Mary each carry a deep gratitude for what she taught and modeled for them about life. I love the story of her chasing the student...

I never had Mr. Wacker for a teacher but my four sons did. One of them told me yesterday that one of his best memories of her was that she truly tried to be the best teacher she could be. This is the best testimonial I can think of for a "teacher".

When I look back and think of the most influential people in my life, Mrs. Wacker is the first person that comes to my mind. Like many others,I was privileged to have Mrs. Wacker as a teacher at Nativity of Mary. In an era where girls sports were just beginning and there were few role models for girls in the area of science, Mrs. Wacker was an incredible influence. She taught me that I could be challenged and succeed, she taught me the importance of role models in kids lives, and she taught...

I taught school with Audrey at Nativity. I was sort of in awe of her, but we soon became friends. She was a wonderful Science teacher. My sons loved her and she kept in touch with our family long after they graduated from 8th grade. She was such an inspiration as to what teaching is all about...Diana Varecka

Mrs Wacker was an outstanding witness as a teacher and Catholic. Our children learned a lot about the Catholic faith from her. She was very helpful to them and to our family. Thank you Mrs. Wacker for all you did!

My condolences to the family of Audrey Wacker. She was my science teacher during junior high. She was tough, yes, but also one of the best teachers I ever had. I've often wondered if she knew how great of a teacher she was. I am so grateful to have known her. I hope someday my children will have a science teacher who is just as inspiring as she was.
