My condolences to the family. Mrs. Skale was my third grade teacher. To a 9 year old, she was bigger than life and so encouraging. I saw her again when my son was in 5th grade and she gave encouragement to me as a mom. But the best encouragement I received from her was our time together in a BSF small group. What a lovely, godly mentor she was! I am so blessed to have had her in my life.

Art I am so sorry to hear of Linda's passing. She was a amazing person and a great teacher. My two children had her as a teacher they loved her. My prayers are with you.

Dear Art and family, so sorry to hear of Linda's death. She was a beautiful person. both outward and inward. As a former neighbor I have nice memories. I fondly recall Michelle, about 2 years old, wandering into our backyard, not wanting her to be lost I walked outside and asked where she lived, promptly she answered "in my mothers house". Linda soon followed her and that how Linda and I met. Both of us young mothers. May she rest in peace in our Saviors arms and may the good memories comfort all of you at this most difficult time.
With loving thoughts, Edith Nickel
