I wish to extend my condolences to Todd, Trisha and Teri and their families on the death of their mother. I remember her fondly from my days at Stearman Elementary School. She was a lovely person and so interested in her children and their education. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
Sincerely, Betty Partridge
