    I am sorry to learn of Mrs. Moore’s passing. She was my Latin teacher at Clinton Central, and I have always appreciated the great foundation to language I learned in her class. I went on to be a high school Spanish teacher. She was always a very kind, patient, and caring teacher.

    It is with the deepest sadness that my wife and I learned of the passing of this truly great lady and teacher who inspired us in our youth. To her family we hope that God will comfort you in your time of grief. Thank you Mrs. Moore for being a wonderful role model, for your kindness and your passion for learning. Ut benedicat tibi deos, sub Elysio nigra videre.

    Mrs. Moore left a mark on me as she did on many. Her calm and grace were remarkable. She was my Latin teacher for two years and health teacher for one. It was nice to be able to see her a few years ago when I still worked at Arnett ER. She still remembered me and all my siblings by name. I was so sorry to hear of her passing, but know she led a long, full life.
