Condolence From: Sandra Cole Moore
Condolence: Both Mr. and Mrs. Werner were my teachers. Mr. Werner at Darby and Mrs. Werner at Northside. Both were also our journalism advisors for newspaper and yearbook. It is amazing to me that they both had equal talent in encouraging us to be the best we could be. All of these years later, every time I spell neighborhood I think of Mr. Werner. I spelled it incorrectly in an essay and, as he handed the paper back to me, he said “was that Jim Naborhood?” Loved learning from both of them! What an incredible and permanent impact they have had on the lives of many young people.

Condolence: I found myself remembering Pat’s sense of adventure (does anyone remember her story about flying to Wyoming and an engine catching fire?). As well as her tremendous wit!! I misread some lines during an audition, and I still laugh thinking about how much we laughed together over my blooper!! She treated us goofy 16 and 17 year olds like we were adults, sort of! With respect, and we mattered. I will be eternally grateful to her, and will always think of her with a smile. My condolences, Charles, and I look forward to auditioning for some heavenly play for her on the other side.

Condolence: Mrs. Werner was wonderful in our Creative Writing Senior English class. The class was informal but so effective, especially in helping us get to know each other before graduation. May she rest in God's Peace.

Condolence: Mrs. Werner was my English teacher at Kimmons Junior High. I was only in Fort Smith for less than two years. We both hailed from central New Jersey and I enjoyed her sense of humor, especially the atrocious puns, with which she framed her tests and assignments. She was a bright spot during some dark days in my youth. I shall miss her.

Condolence: A wonderful human being and incredible mentor--Mrs. Werner as a high school English teacher is someone I will not forget. Classy, brilliant and talented in music and the dramatic arts, Patricia Werner gave many of us a start in our adult lives--beforehand. My heartfelt sympathies to Mr. Werner and each family member...Kimberly Kirby Buchholz
