Susan Kovacs was my Home Economics teacher when I was a student at Jefferson Middle School. I had her for only one semester, but I very much enjoyed who she was and her positive style of teaching. She was particularly good at assessing the ability of her students. My Mom had taught me how to sew, and she would allow me to help those around my table. I remember a time when the person next to me couldn't get their machine threaded correctly. Mrs. Kovacs was walking toward us as I was able to get the machine going. A nod of her head told me that I had done well and she was pleased. This was perhaps, one of the experiences that pointed to teaching as my own career. (I did choose a different subject.) My condolences to the family. You are aware how Susan Kovacs touched lives. She will be remembered!
I am writing about Winifred Sanders. She was a good friend of Dr. Helen Widick, a fellow Altrusan, and as such I had the opportunity to visit with Winifred when Helen purchased medications from her. I, too, am an Altrusan. She was a lovey and caring lady in all ways. It was my pleasure to meet and chat with this special woman when in her store. My sincere condolences to the family on their loss.
