Sorry to hear of your loss. I had Mrs. Wolfe in fourth grade at Sunset Lane. I loved seeing the old photos. It was funny how Darlene and Rob ended up working with Nancy. You are in our prayers.

Thoughts and prayers for the Wolfe family. Here's a picture I found from probably 1955-56 when I was in Mrs. Wolfe's 4th grade at West York Consolidated Elementary School. Probably my parents took it during that year?

I had Mrs. Wolfe as my teacher in 4th grade (1955-56) at Consolidated School on RT#30. Sorry to hear of her passing. I found this picture years ago and I have no idea how I have it. Maybe my parents took it sometime during that 4th grade year.

Prayers of peace for all of the Wolfe family. Mrs. Wolfe was such a wonderful teacher. She was so kind, very motivating and commanded respect; the perfect mix for a teacher. She helped many of us in developing the skills we needed to be successful students and citizens. Her legacy lives on in those she taught.
