Sad to lose a classmate ( JMHS Class of '67 ).
Last time I talked to her was a few years ago at
the Waynesburg Animal Hospital. She was
always a kind person. Sympathies to you.

I, like probably so many of her students, learned a lot from her. She was a kind and joyous teacher. I'm so sorry to hear of her passing. I hope she knew that she will be remembered fondly by the countless students whose lives she touched.

My condolences to you and your family on your loss. I have the fondest memories of Mrs. Niverth's class, I may never have found a use for calculus but I use the skills she taught me every day. I am happy to know that my vote will help fill her last wish.
