    Great lady and great memories of Mrs. Worley at STMA. We had fun in English class and on a trip to the East Coast with her as a chaperone. Deepest sympathy for the family.

    I am sorry to hear of the loss of your mom. She was my favorite teacher in my years of school. She was a person of kindness and always had a smile upon her face. I thought of her often through my years of life. She not only taught me english but also to have a kind heart to all.

    David, sorry to hear about the loss of your mom. She was a very kind lady who was an excellent teacher as well. She also was very supportive with all of the STMA athletic fundraising as I sold her numerous items for football, basketball and baseball over the years. I am sure she will be greatly remembered.
