Your family is in my prayers. I have such fond memories of working with her and most of all the time we lived across the street on Santa Anita. I have many holiday celebration pictures of Jerry and Lisa with Bryan. We both live in the Dallas area now, just in case any of you are near. So sorry for your loss. Lois


Lois! I was looking at old addresses in mom's book and could not find a recent one for you. I am in Round Rock ISD, teaching. Please contact me at my school address and we'll exchange addresses. Thank you for reaching out. Mom loved you so.


My brothers and sisters had the pleasure of having this sweet lady as a teacher for a few years while at Laureles Ranch. We knew her then as Mrs. Hopkins. SHE was the reason my mother finally believed that I needed glasses. Mrs. H caught on to my squinting and erasing my answers before I got up to the front of the line when we had to solve math problems and show her answers on our paper....she wrote the note to my mom saying I may need glasses and I am SO thankful for that, lol. My mom didn't believe me until then :-) She was an AMAZING, CARING and LOVING teacher!!!!!!! Hugs to your family!!! With Sympathy, Sylvia Saenz
