Mrs. Gallaway was my fifth grade teacher at Pleasant St. I remember her for the confidence she had in her students and the support she gave me as a young child. I have many fond memories of that year and include her in a list of teachers that inspired me to become a teacher myself. May God bless her for the devotion, love and care she gave so freely.

Elaine and family -
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Your mother was my 4th grade teacher in a split class at Pleasant Street, many, MANY years ago. I remember her telling me to quit looking out the window and get to work. To this day, I avoid window cubes at the office so I can stay focused! She was a wonderful teacher and she will be missed!!

Mrs Galloway was a great woman. I remember going over to the house with Elaine and making cookies and that hard tack candy that burned my hands for weeks. But we had a great time. I remember her being involved with the children of Grace Brethren church and how helpful she was. I thank her for those great memories of growing up in Ashland and the great friend that Elaine was. She will be missed!

I have shared many special times with Jenice through school, the County Fair and just being friends. She will be sadly missed but with her failing health we know she is in a much better place now.

David and Family,

I had Mrs. Gallaway in school and I remember helping her set up her classroom a few times before school started, along with growing up across the street from you. Bless her and your family in your time of loss.

Mrs. Gallaway will be greatly missed. I spent many hours at her house with my sister and Cindy. Those memories will last a lifetime. I look forward to seeing her again in heaven!

Mrs. Gallaway was my fourth grade teacher at Montgomery Elementary in 1956. I loved her and she was one of my favorite teachers. I think it was her first year to teach and, I'm sorry to say, I didn't make it easy for her. I remember her as a sweet, loving, caring and generous lady. My family also attended Grace Brethren with her (West 10th Street Brethren). Please know that I am sorry for your loss but I sense that your sorrow is not like others for you know that, because of her faith in Jesus Christ, you will see her again in Heaven. God Bless, Terry

Oh how I miss you! I just wish I could tell you Happy Birthday, face to face. I think of you quite often being outside and gardening and how you love it. I found a quote from George Washington Carver that reminds me of you being outside and listening to the birds and all that was going on while you were gardening. You were so tuned into God when you were doing gardening, arrangements and/or making wreaths. Mom, oh how I loved you, I am so sorry for all the grief I may have caused you. I am so glad that we became best friends later on. How miss our conversations and times of doing silly things.
Happy Birthday! You will always be missed.

I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in. ~George Washington Carver

I come here every once and a while just to say how much I miss you. It has been 2 years. Though you are in heaven now those 2 years are probably like seconds to you. Please know that you are missed.
