Mrs. Miner was my 6th grade teacher at Oriskany Falls School 1954-55. I will never forget what a impact she had on my life. Many years ago I had an opportunity to visit her at her home and so thankful I did. She was a wonderful person.

What a surprise to hear that my old bridgeplaying neighbor had passed on to Heaven. She was sweet.
