    I had Mrs. Meyer as a teacher at Westfield Elementary in Westfield, Wisconsin. I fondly remember her as a very kind person who always read to our class after lunch. She would read aloud chapters of the ”Little House on the Prairie” series, always had blue peppermint candies with her and would give one out once in a while and would eat them while reading us chapters. I learned so much from her and will always remember her fondly. She was a great lady. My sincere condolences to the family at this time. I am so very sorry for the delay in signing the guestbook because I just recently heard about her passing.
