“Miss Case” was my Grade IV teacher at Jackson Memorial School on Bell Island. She was such a marvellous teacher in every way that I only have wonderful memories of her.. (I could write a book.) She was my inspiration to become a teacher, encouraging me in any way that she could.
She has certainly had a life well lived!
May God bless “Miss Case” and may she rest in peace.

A pleasure to have known “Aunt Eleanor”…Thinking of you all.
