I am very sad to hear of Mrs. Bugbees passing. She was always there to listen when I came into the high school. She cared about my kids and showed it everyday. I shared many things with her over her desk at the HS. Including her favorite jelly doughnuts that I would bring to her, to thank her for everything she did in some some small way......
Rest In Peace, Mrs Bugbee.

Mrs. Bugbee was the sweetest and the best. Her smile would brighten your day, and her gentleness was a balm. Just a lovely person, taken too soon.

So saddened to hear of Pat's passing. She was always so supportive of the students and always willing to lend a hand with the school plays, whether it be creating costumes or teaching students to crochet their own shawls for a production. A wonderful woman who will be sorely missed. My sincererest condolences to her family.

Patti will be missed by so many as she was such a genuine person. We had been friends since elementary school and even though we didn't see each other that much, when we did, you wouldn't know that any time had passed. Patti endured health issues and heartbreak but she would just shrug them off saying she was fine. We were all amazed at her creative ability and many of us will treasure the beautiful handmade items given to us. She will be missed by many which shows she lived a good life. My sympathy to Mr. Bugbee, Don, John and family.

During my last year of work in the LOL district, I was assigned to the high school and got to know Patti. She was a kind and gentle soul and would do anything she could to help with any issue. I felt blest to call her my friend. She will be truly missed.
