I have fond memories of Mrs. English being my first grade teacher at Grant's School House. There were only four of us in first grade there. I loved that old school building and have very fond memories there. She was also my teacher in 3rd grade at Williamsburg School. Also enjoyed visiting with her at the bank in later years. Now I enjoy visiting some with Gayle when he comes in bank. Our prayers are with you all.

Gayle and Ann,
Mrs. English was a mainstay in many lives and we could always count on her to be fair in everything. She was an awesome teacher and an even sweeter person. She will be greatly missed by so many in the community. Prayers to your family.

Jared, Betsy and families may the memories of your loved one sustain during this difficult time. You are in my prayers. As I was reading the obituary I noticed that your Grandmother was born in Richland. That is the town that I came and I attended 4th grade to 12 grade there. The older I get the smaller the world becomes. "Mr. P"

So sorry to hear about the loss of your Mother, Gayle. She was one of my favorite teachers. I enjoyed even more seeing her around Fulton. We'd stop and visit each and every time. She was a wonderful and sweet person. You had a great Mom, as you already know. I will be keeping your family in my prayers. RIP Mrs English
