I’m sorry to hear of Mrs. Wygant’s passing.
My son had great memories of her from Seton. I was fortunate to share a few fun lunches with her at Active Aging.
You're in our thoughts and prayers.

Ms. Mickki, She remembered her “Y” pre schoolers for many years after they “graduated”, with cards & always asking how they were doing. May u rest in the arms of
the Lord.! Angel of children!

Mickey, Pretty Mickey
with your hair of raven hue
In your smiling, so beguiling
There's a bit of Kilarney,and a bit of the Blarney too
Childhood in wildwood
Like the mountain, flower you grew
Pretty Mickey, Pretty Mickey
Can you blame anyone for falling in love with you.
Rest in Peace And Art will happy to have you by his side again

So sorry to hear of Mrs. Wygant's passing. I've been her mail carrier for about 4years now & I always enjoyed chatting with her on the occasion she was out when I stopped. She left treats once in a while, which was a pleasant surprise. Sending prayers to her family during this sad time.

Sorry to hear of Mrs. Wygant's passing. I have many fond memories of her when I attended Seton school back in the late 70's early 80's. My prayers and deepest sympathy to the Wygant family.
