Phyllis was an amazing women with a big heart. I respected her intelligence and her strength. My deepest condolences to all her family. - Posted by: Doreen Buss (Aunt) on: Mar 04, 2023
The best teacher I ever had, known to us as Mrs. Olson. She came to Oak Bluff and tamed a multi grade classroom that had got 'out of hand'. She accepted nothing but excellence in her students. I benefited greatly from the 3 1/2 years of her guidance. She was a God send then and I know now, she will hear the words something like, "you were a good and faithful servant". - Posted by: Bill Fisher (Student) on: Mar 04, 2023
