    So sorry to hear this. Had her for a teacher, worked for the family at the Post-Register, and considered her a friend. She will be missed by many. Prayers for the family through this difficult time.

    Oh Mrs. Mohle, it seems like yesterday that you were sharing your wisdom
    with me during our VOE class. You were so gentle in your praises & you helped
    me recognize my talents & skills. At that point in my life, I was so impressionable
    and you knew just what to say. Your guidance, kindness & skills helped me develop
    in my initial stages of growth. You pointed me in the right direction & nurtured me
    along the way. Your smile will forever be imprinted in my thoughts. Heaven
    received a teacher angel. Blessings to your family!❤️
