Miss Teft was my favorite teacher. I had her back in 86-87. I loved her very much. RIP my dear one.

Millie was a dear friend of my mom, Lois Jones, while they each lived at The Whitcomb and then The Willows. I kept wishing that they had known each other in earlier years because they were so comfortable as friends. We treasured Millie, even had the treat of her dining with us on several occasions. Her generosity of Love, Laughter, and Kindness lit up the room. Peaceful Journeys, Millie! You changed lives!

I loved Miss Teft! I had her as a first grade teacher and I had the pleasure of working with her in her classroom for years after that! She was a mentor and friend who I will miss!!!
