We Miss You Mrs. Tefft

Tomorrow, another school year begins in Goffstown, NH. Yet, tonight, for the third time in four days, I was stopped in my tracks when I saw the obituary for Mrs. Tefft online. We all should be seeing her tomorrow, standing out front, smiling, and greeting all. Imagine how long the list of accolades and kind words would be if Mrs. Tefft hadn’t been taken so soon. We were some of the fortunate ones that got to feel her impact. We all will miss her here in this community.

  1. She was such a sweat lady. My son had her last year an my other son was supposed to have her this year. She really made an impact on my oldest son and I can’t help but tear up every time I think of this. I hope she knew how much she was appreciated and loved by many people. My heart goes out to her family. I can’t even imagine how difficult this may be for them!

  2. A beautiful, sweet lady that I had the pleasure of working with at Bartlett Elementary and quickly becoming friends. Wendys son was her pride and joy. She would smile at the mention of his name. Prayers for Holden as he begins his journey without his mother. May the shared stories and memories of his mother help him to heal.
