Memories Timeline


  1. I was the music teacher at Chancellor Elementary School in Alief ISD when Roylene was the art teacher. It was my first teaching job right out of college. She was a mentor and a friend. I thought of her today as I was booking a place to stay in Giddings. She was a beautiful person with a kind and loving spirit, a marvelous smile and a deep love for her work, her family, and the children we taught. Sincere condolences. God’s peace.
