Not sure what to say?

Once one knew her, there was NO forgetting her! Those were the days when children were known by their parents, and parents'"stamps" were "block stamps"! Lucretia made an indelable stamp on my children, ...and I am thankful to have shared those years with her. May her memory be a comfort to all who shared her spsce.

Mrs. Board! What can I say, growing up on Waite Street Mrs. Board was like a second mother, I spent countless hours at her house with my dear friend Jimmy. I remember those rides to school in the green station wagon. What memories!! May you rest in peace and God's speed to Carol, Dotty, and Jimmy.

To my cousins Carol,Dotty Lynn and Jimmy , I was so sorry to learn of the loss of your mother .


I was saddened to learn of Mrs. Board's death just a few minutes ago. She was a special woman and a wonderful friend and neighbor. She won the respect of all the kids in the neighborhood, even though many of them were too young to recognize that respect. When I think of Lucretia, I always think of her with the green van picking up the kids and taking them to Washington School,never losing her stern librarian persona. She was always the teacher, no matter whose child, nor where. My prayers...

Please accept my condolences. My Mom, Hannah Cherry and Aunt Pearline Jenkins, knew her and worked with her in the "movement" back in the day. They were in the League of Women Voters together.

We extend our heart felt condolences to the family of Lucretia Board.
May you experience God's peace during this time.

My condolences to the Walton/Board families. May your memories bring you comfort now and in the days to come.

Sending love and sympathy to the Walton Clan. I miss you all. So sad that last of our great history line of the Walton siblings is gone. I am sorry I was unable to be there.
