    Grace Cremins was the type of person about whom no one could say anything bad. She was always sweet, kind, and gracious. She had a fun sense of humor and tried to see the good in everyone. It was my privilege to know Mrs. Cremins and I will miss her. My sympathies to Joe and Cathy, and also to her family and friends, particularly those at OMC.

    Mrs Cremins was my beloved 2nd grade teacher at OMC back in the late 1960s. I have never forgotten her because she was very kind & a wonderful teacher. I remember reciting the times tables in her class & I’m pretty darn good at them to this day. I am grateful for the gifts of learning that she bestowed upon me & the loving way that she shared them. I send my deepest sympathies to her family and all those who were fortunate enough to have known her.
