To read of Mrs. Greenholt's passing was very disheartening. Remembering how she has touched my life, I can honestly say , The world is a better place because she was in it. The kindness in her eye's and brilliant smile is the first thought that I have of her. she tudored me while I recovered from broken leg. then being my 1 st. grade teacher when I was able to attend school. I gave her a broach that year for Christmas,to say "thanks". I saw her years after I graduated, at church around the holiday season . she said, "look, I'm wearing your pin today ". She has truly touched so many. She is with Doc. ounce again,and together they are looking down on there loved one's and family. May God bless you .

My fondest memories from my very first ever teacher - Mrs. Greenholt! Never having gone to kindergarden, Mrs. Greenholt was my \\\\\\\"Mom away from Mom\\\\\\\" as I learned reading and writing and how to become a young lady.

As time went by, Mrs. Greenholt held a different position in my life - that of one of my bestest friend\\\\\\\'s Mom. Lori, you allowed her to become something more to me! I remember you and Wendy doing my hair and makeup for the \\\\\\\"Miss Gettysburg\\\\\\\" Pagent, with your Mom smiling as she looked on... I remember her making our lunch as we came in from swimming at the Lake House... I remember the most kind and loving woman.

I As I look back - I know that our lives were blessed for having known such a fantastic lady - and the Angels are now blessed to have her among them!! My love to you, Lori, to Wendy, and to all of the extended Greenhold Family.
