    Dear Pam, I lived in Shadyside until I married. My favorite teach at Shadyside High was was Mr. Stephen Magyar. Your mom and dad came to all the proms and homecoming dances. After the first time I watched them dance, I dreamed of becoming a dancer just like your mother. She was so beautiful and gracefull wearing gorgeous gowns and danced like a professional dancer. I could have watched them the entire evening. She was so sweet and kind to all of us. So sorry for your loss. Your neighbor, Carol
