Edith L. Landreth was my 1st & 2nd grade teacher at Crane Creek Elementary when I started school in 1951. I will always remember her with fondness.
Her obituary is dated 11/16/07 Bluefield Daily Telegraph and I think it would be a nice gesture if you would post it on the McComas web site.
I have know her family my entire life, and I know she will be missed.
