Many great memories of going to Revere beach, on the subway, with my Mother, sister: Carol who went to CHLS with Flora, Mrs Athanas , Flora, Eva and Paul.....we would meet in the Harvard Square "MTA" station, take subway trains to Revere! we were all youths, had the future stretching before us like an endless highway!
May Flora go from Grace to Grace!
Sincerely! June Doliber

My all time favorite teacher. She went above and beyond teaching. Have so many good memories of 4th grade. She brought us on many field trips but the one I truly remember is her taking us on a Saturday to Longfellows House. So glad I came back for my elementary school reunion in 2012 and got to talk with her and get a photo. I even have a photo of her in 4th grade that I should post later. But here is the one from 2012 Harrington reunion.

So sad to hear this news. Just saw her on the 23rd and she looked content and happy. My deepest condolences for your loss. She was such a devoted daughter and a pleasure to have as our neighbor for the past 15 years. She will be deeply missed. Lissa Galluccio
