    Mrs. Schieve was my fourth grade teacher at Wilcox Elementary. She left me with two very strong memories. That was the year John F Kennedy was killed. I remember the message coming over the loud speaker. We all sat in silence. The next message told us that he had died. Mrs. Schieve wept. I can still see her at that moment in time. And she also taught the class the song, “Swing Low Sweet Chariots”. It has forever since been my favorite. Thank you, sweet teacher, for not just teaching us book lessons but also life lessons. Go with God……

    Mrs. Schieve was, indeed, a sweet person and a great English teacher. I have thought of her many times over the years. Thank you, Mrs. Schieve. You’ve touched more lives than you could have ever known.
