Condolences

Condolence From: SHIRLEY LAUGHLIN

Condolence From: Katie Even
Condolence: Mrs. Dowden was my next door neighbor my entire childhood. She and her family were so nurturing, generous, and patient with our crew of children next door. I have such fond memories of sledding down her backyard hill in the winters, playing in the creek below her house, and I’ll never forget the red treehouse that was such a huge part of my childhood. In all of these memories I picture Mrs. Dowden smiling out her windows or even bringing cookies out to us. I also had the pleasure of having Mrs Dowden as my 1st grade teacher in the mid-80s. She was kind, patient, and soft-spoken as a teacher. I always felt safe in her classroom and felt like I could make mistakes and take risks. I’ll always hold a special place for her. Thank you Mrs. Dowden for being my teacher and neighbor. From my family to yours. Mr. Dowden, Paul, and Brian, sending love. Hang on to each other.

Love,
Katie Even

Condolence From: Matt McGrail
Condolence: One of the greatest teachers I knew. Was my 2nd grade teacher, taught 2 of my 3 boys and a mom to a fellow classmate. Had the chance to work with Ms. Dowden for a number of years. She was always mad I wouldn't call her by her first name when we worked together. But never could. Prayers to the entire Dowden family. We lost a great one!!
