Not sure what to say?

I was an AFS exchange student from Australia in Mrs Claders' Home Room class for my year 73/74 at New Trier. She ensured I felt welcome and included, as she did all her girls. Regular social gatherings at her home, recipes (peanut butter yummies was a favourite), her kindness and interest in us all was very special. I continued to correspond with her until recently and visited her twice over the years when I was in Wilmette. 99 years! Wow! Vale Mrs Clader.

I'm another classmate of Linda's from New Trier, and a fellow "kid of the faculty." I hope you are all doing well in these difficult days. Thinking of you, from Marilyn (Lightner) Grodrian.

I remember Mrs. Clader from the four years that I attended New Trier High School from 1960-1964. Her daughter, Linda, was a classmate of mine. Rest in peace, Mrs. Clader.

Best teacher ever.
