    Mrs. Maddox was one of my favorite teachers. She had such a kindness about her that made you feel good to be in her class. She gave me a book at the end of the school year and I was so very proud. I still have that book with her inscription. I’m so sorry for your loss. She was a fine lady.

    Mrs. Maddox was one of my favorite teachers at Highland Rim. She was always soft spoken and a great example. I remember her speaking of Chad so many times. She was so proud and that was 35+ years ago. She placed a mark on may of her students! May your memories of her comfort you in your days ahead. My prayers are with all of her family.

    To all the family of this beautiful woman. She was by far the sweetest, most caring person I had ever met. She was an angel here on earth and now God has called her back, but we were all blessed to have known her for the time he let us have her. Mrs. Maddox made me a better person and I am thankful he put her in my life. I will always be touched by her kindness, she made a huge impact on me and I am forever grateful.
