Ms. Muth was my 2nd grade teacher at Mt. Hope back in 2006/2007. I'll never forget how much she adored cows and had her room completely decorated with cow decor. She was such a sweet person and impacted the lives of many students, including myself. She will be missed.

So sorry to her of Deb's passing. She was a colleague at Mt. Hope and my son's second grade teacher. She was very sweet and had a big heart.
