I love you and Nancy very much. Having her as my third grade teacher was a pivotal point in my life and has made me a stronger and more able person.
I posted the obituary on Facebook…
two of my best friends from third grade (Nancy paired me up with them) are still two of my best friends. Here is what they wrote:
Sharon Ault Peterson: Best. Teacher. Ever. 3rd Grade was awesome!
(Sharon is an elementary music teacher.)
Anthony Brooks: She touched a lot of lives, including mine. Mrs. Johnson was easily the kindest and most supportive teacher I had growing up. I have an amazing memory of her helping me make a Conestoga wagon!!
(Anthony went to Julliard, Cincinnati Conservatory and Yale for bass cello.)
