Ms. Bramel was my second grade teacher at Lewisburg. I remember her so fondly for her love and patience that she showed her many students. She was a remarkable woman and will be missed by many. My condolences to her family.

I am so sorry to read of Bessie Kelly's passing. She was a remarkable lady. She never forgot her many students and their families through the years and could call each of them by name when she saw them. She was a wonderful neighbor and friend. Her knowledge and sweet manners have touched many lives in her 100 years. She will certainly be missed by all who knew her. May she rest in peace.

Ms. Bramel was one of my favorite teachers. Her simple, quiet methods of teaching are part of my fondest memories of Lewisburg.

To the family: From: Juanita Maynard Miller. I am saddened by the death of Bessie Kelly as my mom called her. Of course, I called her Miss Bramel. She was both family, my teacher, and friend. I spent some blessed time with her at the nursing home two weeks ago. Those moments and conversation will be forever golden to me. I love her very much. My heart is full right now and my eyes are teary, for I will miss her and never forget her. I share your grief and memories at this time. Further, as family, my mother was Violet Maynard, they were very close, mom was only three years younger. My great grandparents were Emmett and Maggie Bramel. I have never put the whole connection together, but maybe someday I will. God be with you at this time. I am sure you will have her memory to keep you going for some time. Love, Juanita.
