You were a wonderful role model. I should have told you. You had patience, trust, and belief in and with dealing with "busy bodies". I was one. We spent a lot of time together. You were my best teacher and principal ever. May god rest your soul.

Annabell McInerney was a wonderful teacher and person. She left a positive influence on my life during my 7th grade when she was our teacher at St. Elizabeth's Grade School in 1965. I was fortunate to keep in contact with her over the years, off and on and we went together to see Fr. Bauman @ Little Sisters of the Poor just before his passing. We went to have a burger and a beer after that visit and had a great time together. RIP Mrs. "M" and my sincere sympathy to the entire family at this time of loss. OXOX

Mary, I often wondered how your mother was doing. I remember when she and my mom were temporary “roommates” at Armour Oaks. Your mom had broken her leg after getting it tangled in the bed sheets one morning. To this day, I carefully remove the covers and place both feet on the ground before getting up in the morning. Annabelle—always the teacher.

I remember Mrs. McInerney well. My mom taught Kindergarten at St. E. from1962-1987. Mom hosted a get together for all the teachers at our home on Summit at the end of every year. Mrs. McInerney was always there. She had a great smile and a charming laugh. I always enjoyed visiting with her whenever I saw her at various functions. I didn't have her as a teacher or principal but several of my five younger siblings did. She left a wonderful legacy at St. E. I'm so very sorry for all the pain that losing her brings.

Jim, Vince, and Mary, so sorry to hear about your Mom's passing. My class at St. E was 1966. We are still a very close group of friends and your Mom came to one of our reunions. Almost the entire class has had such wonderful things to say about her. You would think living next door to your 7th grade teachers might be difficult but it was great. Our prayers to you all.
