My sympathy to your family for loss of Martha. The Ambrose family lived across the street on Garden Road, and I have many fond memories of Martha (and Billy and her family). I know she will be missed.

Ms Berginski!! You were Awesome! You were the epitome of KIND, and SWEET!! The Shelby children enjoyed having you the first years of their educational life. You laid an awesome foundation of education and acceptance with our children. We were always praying that you would be their kindergarten teacher, being that we had six children go through Millcreek. You will be missed. To her family, You had an angel in your mist! The Shelby Family will be Praying continuously for your comfort🙏🏾
Mrs. B was my kindergarten teacher at Millcreek 20 years ago. She was so incredibly kind and full of life. Her classroom was pure magic—from the letter people hung around the ceiling to the kitchen set and many toys. I remember several afternoons of Reading Rainbow and many times that Mrs. B let me clean her desk (I loved to organize things) or just chat with me. She is the reason I love learning and teaching so much today! My deepest condolences for your loss. The world has lost a light.
Mark, Matt and Sara, I was so saddened to hear about Martha's passing. I was so blessed to have known her and taught with her so many years at Millcreek. And equally blessed to have had Matt and Sara in my fourth grade class. My thoughts and prayers and love are with all of you during these difficult days...Much Love, Ann Browning
A beautiful friend and excellent teacher I will never forget. My sincere condolences.
