Mrs. L’Heureux could always find something nice to say about anyone. That is such a rare quality. She was so easy to be around, especially to laugh with as she had funny things to say all the time. So many memories throughout my life, just being there, thinking about her gives me comfort.

I will never forget meeting Ann and Janet my first year at Apache. They were always so kind as I would be in the work room and always willing to make copies, cut out things and were very protective of the laminator. I enjoyed our conversations and always appreciated her time. May she Rest In Peace and be reunited with loved ones who have left before her. Many prayers for the family.

Ann and I worked together at Apache elementary and became good friends. We shared many memories, especially in the workroom and lunchroom duty (which was not our favorite). After we both retired we had lunch dates and remembered each others birthdays, Christmas and anniversary parties. I remember she came to my and Jim's 40th wedding anniversary and I have a picture of us together at that party. I will cherish it always.
Sometimes when she was able she and I subbed at Bunko with many Apache teachers. It was always fun for them to see and visit with her and we got the scoop on the happenings at Apache .
I will miss my friend Ann every day and think of the fun times we had together. I know she is with her beloved husband LaVern and many relatives that went before her to make her place in heaven. I loved her and I think she loved me too! May she rest in peace with God our Father.
