    Honored to of worked with her for many years. She was one of few that encouraged me to go to auction school and supported the career. She clerked many auctions in all kinds of weather as a supplement to her teaching income. We also served on the Bess S. Aldrich Found Board for many years with many fund raisers and quilt shows. She seemed to care deeply about students and pets without homes. She had a gift for Fair exhibits whether her flowers or her counted cross stitch projects. She’ll always remain in our hearts..
