  1. Mrs. Utsey was my teacher when I attended Roosevelt Elementary School in Elyria, Ohio. Ironically, she had just crossed my mind a couple of days ago, and then afterwards, I came across this notice of her passing. She was such a nice and caring teacher which says a lot about her as a person. May her family and all of those whose life that she had a positive impact on, be surrounded with God’s peace, comfort, and strength. When you shed a tear may God bring to your remembrance, the memories of Mrs. Utsey that will exchange your sorrow for joy, bring a smile to your face, laughter to your lips, and joy to your heart in Jesus Name. Amen.

    My Loveable Teacher

    Those we love don’t go away,
    They walk beside us every day,
    Unseen, unheard, but always near,
    Still loved, still missed and very dear.
