“My sincere condolences Gary. Carolyn was a wonderful wife and friend. May God comfort you. Take care of yourself.”

“Throughout all my years in school Mrs Maschmeyer was always my favorite! She was our sub for half the year when Mrs Tuell had her daughter and everyone LOVED having her. I’ll never forget when she brought us post cards from her cruise or the stuffed animals and the time she let me flick her in the nose. I have told my kids many stories about my time in elementary with her and will always remember this sweet lady with the biggest heart!”

“There are very few teachers that challenge students to try new things. Mrs Maschmeyer was one of those. I remember once a week she would bring in a new food item for us to try. From macadamia nuts to octopus, she opened our minds and pallette to new experiences. Her passion for teaching and love for students and animals (even snakes) is what I’ll remember most.”

“One of my children’s favorite teachers while at St. Bernard Elementary. You will be missed. Thanks for the memories. Jenny Jeffries”

“One of my favorite teachers. She will be missed by many. My prayers and condolences go out to her family and friends. An awesome lady, wonderful teacher, and she will always be in my memories.”

“Mrs. Maschmeyer was my 5th grade teacher way back in the “new” elementary school. I’ll always remember her laugh, her smile, her enthusiasm for teaching. There are some teachers that leave a huge impression on you and she was one of those teachers. My sister remembers Angel the Cheetah, I remember Waite Hoyt and the history unit that included King Tut. How lucky were we to have her as our teacher?”

“My first grade teacher in 1976…still have many memories. Thank you!”

“Mrs.Maschmeyer You will be missed, loved being taught by you”

“I LOVED this lady! She could be tough, but I learned so much from. I loved her spicy personality and her incredible, generous heart. I wish I could’ve hugged her one more time. Rest in Heaven Mrs. Maschmeyer knowing many of your former students will remember you.”

“My deepest condolences to the family, friends, and students of Mrs. Maschmeyer. She was one of the best. I remember she got me fascinated with Egypttian history that I had my Uncle do a portrait of King Tut that I took into school to show. She loved it so much that she had my Uncle paint one for her as well. She was a brilliant, fun , strict and patient educator who definitely made a influence on me. Thank you would not be enough. She will be missed.”

“My condolences to you and your family. Myself, like many others, had Mrs. Maschmeyer as a 6th grade teacher. Of all the teachers I’ve had thru my lifetime, she was by far, my favorite. The gift that she had to engage a student and push them to succeed was a true gift. The sharing of her travels and turning them into a learning experience was extraordinary. I would pop into the school on occasion to visit. It was always a pleasure seeing her and talking to her again. The love that she had for teaching…… Doug Hudson C/O 95′”
