Tuesday, October 17, 2017I greatly admired Beverley on many levels -- as a wife, mother, teacher, friend, and woman of great intellect and very high standards. She was fun to be with and eager to be helpful in any way that she could. She was very unselfish, dependable, and community-minded. and an asset to any project she undertook. She was also a true role model to her students and everyone else. My own children often referred to her as one of the best teachers they ever had. She and Frank were a great team. I send my condolences to her family.

Tuesday, October 17, 2017Mrs. McNally -- fifty years after she taught me at Putnam Grammar School, she's still that to me -- was a fine teacher and a lovely woman. Her students admired and respected her: there was no misbehavior in her classes, not because she was a strict disciplinarian -- she wasn't -- but because she was so well-liked. (The same was true about Mr. Burgess. And would have been true about Mrs. King had she, too, taught school; everyone knows that friendliness runs in that family.). As a science teacher, she preached conservation and smart eating way ahead of her time: I remember her telling us once that the healthiest spot in the kitchen was the sink, because that's where the most nutritious food ended up. Mr. McNally was a wonderful man with a great sense of humor (I was sad to learn of his recent passing) and the McNally home near the Thompson Dam was a warm and welcoming place. My condolences to the family.
