Our thoughts and prayers to Lee and their children & grandchildren. It has been especially sad for us as we met and talked with Linda in July of this year in Walgreens while we were on a trip back to our hometown. She looked so pretty, as always, and seemed so happy telling us about her family as we had not seen her in many years. This was an unbelievable shock to us. May God Bless you all with His Comfort, His Peace and His Love.

Linda the way you lit up a room with your beautiful smile will be forever missed. You were the kindest most compassionate woman I have ever met. I will always cherish the times we went to lunch together at the hoffman house where we always ordered the same thing(rueban sandwiches). I will miss those talks and laughs we shared. You were such a wonderful role model. The way you cherished and loved your family was so beautiful. You will forever be in my heart. I love you and will deeply miss you.
Lee, Lee jr., Ami and grandchildren my heart aches for you. My thoughts are with you all.

Mrs. Molyneaux was my homeroom teacher all through my years at Coleman. She always had a very special way to show that she cared and brightened all of my mornings... even though I don't consider myself a "morning person". She truly was someone I looked forward to seeing daily. Beautiful on the inside and out. So shocked and saddened.I will truly miss her... but will continue to think of her in the best way possible as I always have. My heart aches for all of those who were lucky enough to know her... She truly was one of the very best teachers and had such an amazing heart that it glowed through her eyes, everyday. My sympathies to all who knew her...especially her family. Much love...Rest in Peace Mrs. Molyneaux you will truly be missed by hundreds of students and faculty<3

On Thursday evening I learned of Mrs. Molyneaux's passing and was immediately flooded with memories and gratitude to have known her not only as a teacher at Coleman but also as a confidant. Linda accepted us as we were, young adults coming into our own with questions in an ever-changing world. She filled us each day with her wisdom and guidance. We have lost such a gentle companionate person and heaven gainned a very special Angel. I feel so blessed to have known her. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family.
