Mrs. Daley was my Kindergarten and 4th grade teacher at Liberty Elementary school. Her love, kindness and encouragement had a life long impact on my life. For me, she was the best teacher ever. Her humor and pleasant outlook on life was refreshing when I encountered her as an adult. She always greeted me with such joy. I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.

Mrs. Daley was my fourth grade teacher at Rockhill Elementary school in Alliance. She was a favorite of mine and I was blessed to see her at church on Sundays too! She was a wonderful teacher. Prayers for her family. ❤

One of my favorite Memories was watching Grace and Frank dancing at our wedding, it was a joy to watch them. I love all of you, John
