My fondest memories of Mrs. Trostle is when I’d go home with Sharon after school. Mrs. Trostle always had a smile on her face and a refrigerator full of food. She’d talk with us for a bit always smiling. Her laugh would fill your heart. She will always be remembered as the sweetest mom always there to listen🙏🏻💗
