    I was a 3rd grade student of Mrs. Trees in the early 60’s. Mrs. Trees was my favorite teacher of all time. She treated me as an adult and cared about my feelings and development. Those memories are still with me ‘many years’ later. She will be greatly missed.

    In the early years at Wesley Manor, Ginny was always cheerful with a winning smile for all she met. She will be missed.

    I had Mrs. Trees at Jackson. She was always one of my favorite teachers. She was always so patient and had such a kind heart. Mrs. Trees never played favorites she treated each student as if she loved each one of us as her own child, and I truly say that in all sincerity. I was blessed to have her as a teacher and for her to be part of my life. She was as beautiful on the inside as she was on the outside. May God grant you peace as you grieve the loss of this wonderful woman.
