Miss Russo was my fourth grade teacher at Plympton Elementary School in the mid 60s. I clearly remember the kindness she showed me as a very shy student, and the attention she paid to all in her classroom. During my last move, I found my grade school report cards, and smiled when I read how she carefully constructed her hopes for my improvement to break free from my shyness. I'm sorry I didn't seek out the opportunity to tell her the positive impact she had upon me. I'll never forget her. Rest in peace Miss Russo.

Miss Russo was my favorite teacher during my years at Plympton Elementary School. She was kind, had patience and always a big smile for her students. As an adult I was lucky to reconnect with her through my job at a doctor's office. It was a pleasure to be part of her care there for many years and I looked forward to visits from her and her sister. She was a loving caregiver and I am sure she will be missed by family and friends.
