Ms. Smith was such a special lady. I remember her from High School in Ansbach, Germany . What a delightful surprise it was to run into her at Ellison a year or so later. She was always kind and had a love for her students like non other. I enjoyed running into her at school reunions and occasionally a football game. Fly high and rest in the arms of Jesus. You will always be remembered fondly. C/O 86

I'm so sorry for your loss!
Ms. Smith was by far one of my favorite teachers at Ellison. She truly cared about her students...always loved talking to her. Rest in Peace...you will be missed by many!

Sarah is the reason I met the love of my life. She played match-maker (as she had been known to do from time to time) for her Goddaughter back in the fall of 1988, and while I might not have been the intended target, fate brought us together. She will always be remembered as one of those teachers that would go the extra mile for her students and made a difference in every life she touched. God gained another great one up in heaven on October 22nd. We love you Sarah.

It was my pleasure to have known Sarah and be considered as one of her friends. She was one of the best teachers a student could have, because she cared. She definitely will be missed.
