Your wonderful Mother was as beautiful when she was older as she was when she was a student at Bensalem!  God rest her soul and keep the memories in your heart of all the great times you had and the advice and love she gave to you.  With sincere sympathy, Linda Matz Cassel Allen

My family also moved to Trevose in 1946; living across the street from the Elsesser family on Boston (then Birch) Avenue. I remember Theresa's mother welcoming our 2 small dogs and pet duck when they would cross the street to visit!  On occasion even the Route 84 bus would stop for them! I remember her Mother always tending to the large vegetable garden.  They were a great family, and wonderful neighbors.  

May God Bless her soul,   Eleanor Kuhns Scheidegg (class of 1955)
