Mrs. Arnold was such a great teacher and person. Her smile was contagious. Even though it’s been many years since I was in her class, I still remember how she would make learning fun and keep us laughing. May a God grant peace and comfort to the family.

What a sweet lady who always had a smile to share with students and coworkers. I am not sure how many years Ms Mary Lou and I worked together because after she retired , for years she came back to substitute teach . She was a kind lady who not only could teach but boy she could cook a cake! Praying for God’s peace and strength for her family.
