|Mrs. Jeanne Battle|
|My mother, Mrs. Battle, taught the 3rd. Standard at MEHS from 1951 to 1961. In the early years of her tenure, she also helped with the PT (Physical Training) classes.In September of 1961, she took her five kids and migrated to the United States where we settled in the suburbs of Los Angeles, California. There she taught for a year in a Catholic School in the San Fernando Valley, but due to low teaching salaries and only ten months of employment each year, she hired on at Pacific Telephone as an operator in 1962. She held that position for twenty years, till she retired in 1982.
In 1987, she came to live with Wendy & I in Simi Valley. At the end of 1995 she was diagnosed as having arteriosclerosis and told she needed a triple bypass operation to correct the condition. During the operation she suffered a massive stroke, went into a coma from which she never recovered and died on January 3, 1996.
