Levy's loss is great

-A A +A

Last week Levy County lost a remarkable lady, Helen Usher.

I was honored and privileged to have her in my life as a teacher, mentor, family friend and lifetime acquaintance.

Mrs. Usher was a Bronson High alumni, in class with my Uncle Jr. Jerrels, my eighth grade math teacher who prepared me in later life, when starting my studies in engineering. Her extra help and attention, were largely responsible for me being able to obtain many of my goals.

I lived on the Chiefland Highway with my grandparents Rubin and Nell Jerrels in one of the International paper houses.

My grandfather was good friends with Etter Usher, whom I remember stopping at our house to talk timber, we also made many visits to their home on the road to Cedar Key.

Mrs. Usher drove a beautiful 1957 Oldsmobile. On many occasions, if I was waiting on the bus, she would stop and give me a ride to school and also if she passed me walking home, she would stop and give me a lift.
