Ms. Ulrich was my 5th grade teacher in a combined 4th grade/5th grade class at Schaefferstown Elementary School. I remember being so appreciative of the fact that she actually made time to teach science. Also, her service to and in St. Luke's Lutheran Church was unmatched. She really was a quality person that set high standards. I am grateful to have known her. I pray that God's peace will be with her family.

I had the pleasure of having Ms. Ulrich as my fourth and fifth grade teacher at Schaefferstown Elementary. I remember loving hearing her read chapter books aloud to the class every day. She was smart, fair and fun. She will be missed. My condolences to her family.

Carol was my cousin. I remember her as being in charge, capable, efficient, helpful, always working for good. Indeed, she was a good person. I loved my conversations with her later when I grew up and was able to appreciate her admirable qualities. She was always helpful and kind, May God give her rest from all her work on this earth. And may her family be comforted in recalling the memories of her strong, fruitful life.

To Carol's Family,

My heartfelt condolences to all of you. I had the pleasure and honor of working with Carol at Schaefferstown Elementary when I was an aide, then transitioning with her to Jackson Elementary as her secretary when she became principal of Myerstown and Jackson. Carol was a hard-working, extremely dedicated woman, championing for what was best for the students. She was a generous person, and thought the world of all of her family. May you find peace and comfort in all the wonderful memories you've shared over the years.
