Heard about this lovely Catholic woman of education through my friend Fred Hart . Fred cut short his vacation with my family in S.E. Michigan to be able to attend various memorial services in Arkansas . What a dedicated Catholic family relative that he is ! Pax Christi ! Vivat Jesus ! Warren K of C Council # 9939 ; Tecumseh .

I won’t ever forget the years I spent in Mrs. Hart’s classroom during my time at Subiaco. She taught with humor and rigor. I’m so sorry to hear of her passing. We’ve shared many memories from those times among my brothers from the Class of 2015 since hearing the news. We’re all better because of her. May she rest in peace.
