I had the pleasure of teaching in the same pod with Lorna at Terrace Elementary from 2001 until she retired. Lorna was so fun to work with and loved teaching the students. She cared about everyone! You can tell that she left a lasting impression on many people's lifes. My thoughts and prayers to Don and the family.

I had the pleasure of working with Lorna at Terrace Elementary for nine years of my teaching career in Art. She always had a smile on her face and a positive outlook on every situation. Lorna adored her profession and the children in her classroom. She will always be remembered as a beloved member of the Terrace faculty.

So sorry to hear of Lorna's passing, although we know that she has suffered for many years and is finally at peace. Lorna and I were birthday twins and enjoyed teasing each other every April 18. My great niece, Ruby Terrell, always spoke of what a great, caring teacher Lorna was. Lorna was a fun and very involved person at church, and was dearly missed these last few years. Prayers for you, Don and boys. Rest In Peace, Lorna.

I thank God for Mrs. Agard! She was one of the teachers I have the most memories of as a student at Terrace. I remember once approaching her desk and accidentally calling her "mom" to get her attention. I was so embarrassed but she was so kind :) I remember her gentle way about her and how she kept this cool tank of swimming frogs near the front of the class. Everyone loved her.

She had such a strong impact

One of the few teachers that I remember to this day, I'm sad to hear of her passing, I send prayers to her family in this time. Mrs. Agard thank you for everything you taught me.
