    I am a South Green “baby” and Mrs. Peil was my first grade teacher. I vividly remember where her classroom was, her radiant smile and pretty hair. She was a beautiful person inside and out. My deepest condolences to her family! Love, Emily Jane Burch Richey

    dear Shahn,Susan and Laura, I taught with your mom many years at South Green and we always had a good time even if it wasn’t a good time. Paulette loved to tell jokes,listen to jokes and we even cut up a little at faculty meetings. Your mom was so talented as I am sure you know,but she would tear off a long piece of white paper and free handed cut out something beautiful. She had a vision for life and has fought a long time. She talked about all of you often and I know you will miss her as well as the ones who knew her. She also loved her dogs. They kept her warm. Words can never replace her ,but the things she leaves behind will be here forever. love, Mrs. High
