Ms. Lincoln, I was sorry to hear of your passing.  You were my gym teacher for two years at Riley High School (1971 and 1972) and I was your gym assistant for one year (1973).  I learned a lot of great tumbling routines,  trampoline routines and volleyball moves from you.  I loved track and all the sports and was an avid gym enthusiast.  I would have participated in track, volleyball, and gymnastics if not for having to babysit my younger siblings after school.  If it would have been allowed, I would have been your gym aide my senior year.

Thank you for all the great lessons you taught me.

I will miss you.  Rest in peace.


Diane Ayer Davis, Riley Class of '74
