Mrs Haltiwanger was the best English teacher I ever had and quite a spiritual leader. I learned so much from her and enjoyed being around her. She and I connected so well and I saw her as a teacher and friend. She will always be in my heart.

Mr Haltiwanger, I already miss you and Mrs Haltiwanger coming in whenever she wanted to order a plaque for someone.

When she was composing the wording for the plaque I was always impressed how much thought she put into it, she wanted to be so sure she was clearly expressing the appreciation and recognition the recipient ( looked up correct spelling, would not want her to give me a red cross mark for misspelling ) deserved. She covered all bases

I have just learned of Mrs. Haltiwanger's passing. I was a student of hers at Warwick High. I enjoyed her class very much, although I never did learn how to diagram those sentences! We had many good talks about the Lord. I can remember during lunch she was always working on courses from Liberty Baptist College. May God's blessings be with you all. Think of the fond memories of her as I have often done when I think of my days at Warwick High.

Seeing Mrs Haltiwanger's picture brought back such fond memories. I can see her standing outside of her classroom as classes were changing, I don't believe I ever saw her frown. As a female, I was so proud of her for her perseverance and determination to become a professional, and encourage others to seek and follow their dreams. Most of all, he was a woman of God. I grew up with most of the Haltiwangers, Isaiah was in my class (HHS '64). My heartfelt condolences to her family.
