God bless and keep Lucy and Family in the loss of your Mom and one of the most dedicated teachers that ever walked the halls of St. Pauls Elementary school. My prayers are with you. Mrs. Schwallie was very much respected, strict when required, and taught me and my other Wrigley family members a lot in preparation for the game of life. She enforced some necessary discipline during the learning process, and I thank her for contributing to my success. I am very fortunate to have had the privilege of being one of her students at St. Pauls. With Love, John (Tim) Wrigley, 65, New Palestine, IN
