So sorry to hear about your Mom’s passing. I remember her when she was teaching Math at Webster Schroeder High School (formerly HW Schroeder High School). I also remember her from her daughter Kelly. Kelly and I were friends in high school at Schroeder. I always remembered Kelly’s Mom as being refined well-educated woman.
Mrs. Raab was our across-the-street neighbor in Webster for many years, and helped get me through high school maths as a long-time tutor. She was always patient, and a truly excellent teacher. She was a lovely neighbor, too. I’m sorry to hear of her passing and will remember her fondly.
