    "Miss Oneill" was my 7th grade teacher at St. E's. It was her first year there. I can still remember that day when this beautiful lady entered our classroom. WE could not believe she was going to be our teacher! The boys wanted to date her and the girls wanted to be like her. She was just the sweetest, kindest, and caring teacher. I must admit we had some challenging students in that class, but Miss Oneill always disciplined with kindness. My condolences to the whole family.
