Miss Russo was my biology, chemistry and physiology teacher. She was always impeccably groomed and threatened us with dragging her fingernails along the blackboard if we didn’t behave! She ran a tight ship, laughed with us and was well respected. My condolences to her husband and family. Bonnie Blouin DeVale Class of 1961 Mother of Sorrows
