    So sorry to hear of the passing of Mrs. Newberry. I had several of her business classes, graduating from Hiseville High School in 1964. She was such a sweet person, and what a surprise when I saw that her maiden name is Dearing. My mother’s family were Dearings from the Franklin/Bowling Green area. It’s a beautiful thought after all these years to think that I may have been related to her.
