This wonderful lady was my 1st and 3rd grade teacher a Highland Riverside. I had no idea all the things she had done in her life. She definitely made an impression on me early in my schooling. My prayers go out to her family. I'm sure she is teaching angels in heaven.

Heavens got a special lady, sweetest woman you could ever meet. Beautiful inside and out, an inspiration with comforting words when needed - Teaching and guiding as she had done years ago. I and many that knew her called her the "Queen" because she could lite up a room with her smiles and laughter. An angel here on earth for all of us.
Prayers of strength to carry on as she would want you to carry on. Let her memories keep you going. She will be greatly missed by many ..... Love and prayers for all who was touched by her ..... Teresa Musick

It was a privilege and a joy to do Midge's hair every week. She was a delight to hold a conversation with, and she was the person who led me back to church. My heartfelt condolences to Max and family.
