Mrs. Wolfe was my bus driver in elementary school. It was a long time ago but I still remember her laugh. On my last day on her bus, she gave me an Avon angel necklace with my birthstone in it. I'll always remember her! RIP Mrs. Wolfe!! <3

Tammi and Shane,
I first met your Mom when she drove my daughter in Kindergarten. I remember her living on Finley Rd. I used to go down and plow out her driveway in the winter with my little tractor. Then she was the one that talked me in to driving school buses. I listened to her and worked along side of her for years. We had so many laughs and she always knew how to brighten my day and I truly hope I brightened hers too!!! She will be so missed!!!! My thoughts and prayers are with all Betty's family as well with her in heaven.
