Mrs. Moledor was my teacher in 3rd and 4th grades at St. Patrick's. I remember her being a very kind and even tempered person.  As a teacher, she made a difference in people's lives.

 My mother, Agnes Bauer, replaced her while she was on Maternity leave while I was in 3rd grade. . My condolences go out to Mrs. Moledor's family and friends.
