Condolence: Upon returning to visit my mom in Milford, I noticed that Mrs. Bloxom's house was up for sale. I looked her up and just found out she passed. I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I had Mrs. Bloxom for 1 year at Meadowside in 1978 to 1979 (We moved to Milford). She was a wonderful teacher and she instilled in me a desire to continue my educational efforts. In that 1 year, she was instrumental in where I went in life. In reading her obit, I smiled. Thank you for sharing. She made a difference in our young lives.

Condolence: Mrs. Bloxsom was my science teacher and one of the few teachers who made a real impact on the person that I am. She made science interesting and didn't let me get away with much. She was tough, but she also informed me she knew I had a brain that worked well and challenged me to work. I was not an easy student for any teacher, but she seemed to know how to make me want to do better. The final report I wrote for her class was on Ecology, a new branch of science at the time. That report and her tutelage instilled in me a lifelong concern for environmental issues and a pro environmental ethic that has guided the principles I live by to this day. She made a real difference in my life. I'm thankful to have had her influence at the time that I did. I'm glad to see she had a rich and long life and wish all of her loved ones and family peace and comfort.

Condolence: My sincere condolences to Ceil's extensive family. Ceil was a dental patient of ours and was one of our favorite people. She was gracious, kind and had a great sense of humor. I'll always remember her telling us the history of the various rooms in our office. She and her young family had lived in the house when it was a private dwelling and she felt very much at home during her dental appointments. We shall miss her lovely smile and graceful presence.

Condolence: Bloxsom family .. I'm very sorry for your loss. I only had Mrs. Bloxsom for one year at Meadowside, but in that one year she had a tremendous impact on my life about discipline and the importance of taking learning seriously.
