Ms Sale so encouraged me to reach my potential as a student. Her encouragement inspired me to ge the best grades of my high school career. I note that, after almost 45 years between then and now, the date of her passing was my birthday. So grateful!

Miss Sale made such an impact on my life. She encouraged me to strive for more in college and to do my very best. One afternoon I stopped at Happy Dayz and there she sat having a sandwich. I was so happy to be able to introduce such an important person to my daughter. She asked me to call her Ann, but I just couldn't bring myself to do so. She made a difference and will long be remembered.

I used to mow her father's lawn as a teenager before learning she was his daughter. She invited me in for a glass of tea one afternoon and we talked for hours. From then on, she became more than a teacher, she was my friend. I think at that time, I was the only person who could call her She was a wonderful woman who supported and encouraged me through high school. She hugged me when I graduated, and I will never forget the impact she made on my life.

Ann was a member of our graduating class of 1956 from Hardin Northern High School. She was the quiet but caring one. A truly faithful daughter for her parents.We regret she did't stay in touch with any of us after graduation even though we tried. May you be comforted that as a class we do care and she will be remembered always.

Miss Sale was one of my teachers in high school. I always enjoyed her Government class. She was one of my favorite teachers and will be missed. I would see her in Lima occasionally and I'm glad I had the chance to tell her how much I appreciated her.

I must admit, I was probably one of the students that probably made her wonder why she chose teaching but I always had a healthy dose of respect for her. I wish I would have learned more. I recall one day something tickled her and she giggled through class. I loved it. Thank you Miss Sale for trying so hard for us!

Condolences for the passing of Miss Sale. Her patriotism, high standards, care for students and sardonic -- she gave me a thesaurus for graduation but told me to "chuck it" if not useful -- wit were always actively shared. She was one-of-a-kind and will be missed! Love to you all.
