Ms.Armour was so special of a teacher. She stayed in contact with me over all the years. I was one of her first students in Sparta. She was such a great influence to so many over the years.
She is finally back with her sweet husband. She never had her own children but she made up for that with all the children and young people she taught.
I am so glad I was one of them. Rest now and we will miss you.
Love, Lee

Ms Lanelle was a precious lady loved by everyone who knew her. She will be missed. Our prayers go out to Bill and Joyce Taylor who were her dedicated friends and caretakers.
