She was very dedicated and had a positive influence on thousands of children and their parents. As a teacher and principal she set high academic standards and ran a pretty tight ship. She expected people to do the best that they could. But there was always an underlying kindness and love in everything she did.

I believe her ability to laugh and make others smile kept her and the people around her going. She was also a deeply spiritual woman who had a great devotion to the Blessed Virgin.
