Mrs Pyle was such a kind, caring soul. She was by far a favorite teacher of mine. I have such fond memories of her. She remembered my family through the years even attending the funeral of my grandfather. Her heart was the biggest I’ve known. She was amazing and will be greatly missed. With care and adoration- Mandy Nusser
