Hi class mates, some of you may remember my mother, Lois Dennler from Herbert Hoover, many of you had her for French or Spanish, maybe as a home room teacher.  She lost her long battle with Alzheimer's disease on Sunday, March 4th.  My sisters Kathy and Debbie and I were at her side in St Louis.  I just wanted you to know, and here is a link to the home where we will have our service this Saturday. She was many things but most of all, a great mother, and a great teacher.  Hope this finds you all well.

I am so sorry to hear of her passing Rick,  She "attempted" to teach me Spanish.  She did a really good job.... I didn't.  I seem to have forgotten 99% of it today.  Loved your mother.  She was great!  She also had the best room at Hoover.  Right there where all the halls converged and next to the bathrooms where the kids would go to get in trouble.  GREAT MEMORIES ! ! ! ! !

Hi Rick,

So sorry to hear of your mother's passing.  When I took Spanish from your mom,  I was a typical Jr. High kid,... wasn't the best student interested in a foreign language.  But I did listen, and I did learn.  Later in my life,  I took a trip to Peru; then later two trips to Nicaragua.  And I worked really hard to speak conversational Spanish.  Also,  over 10 percent of my customers at work speak Spanish.  Mrs. Dennler was a great teacher, and a great neighbor when we hung out together.  So,  "Gracias, Senora Dennler. Dios te bendiga."  And I will pray for comfort for your family.

Rick, 

Sorry for your loss. I too was a partial success story in her class.

Thank you, again for your thoughts and memories,  we had a wonderful service in St Louis Saturday. So many comments came up about her years teaching junior high, some of those comments from her students read aloud by my sister Kathy.  My mom was also a Central High grad.  My uncle Paul Vander Wiel who coached and taught at Central when we attended was there with his wife, my mom’s sister Marlene and their daughter.  You may have had Paul for Biology, or as a track or football coach.  If you were in my biology class with Paul, you might remember him throwing an earthworm across the room at me, landing on my head.  Never a dull moment.

Rick, sorry to hear of your mom's passing. I, too, remember exactly where her classroom was at Hoover. I have  very positive memories of your mom. She was always kind to me and I thought she was pretty and she had a great smile. She had a positive influence on many of us. Sending you and your family a warm embrace.
