  1. Dear Charles and family
    Accept my condolences. I taught with Carmen at the Beatrice High School. I remember Carmen as a very dedicated teacher, loving her job and her students. Always friendly and professional. It has been a pleasure to know Carmen

  2. We are very sorry about Carmen’s passing. When she was a teacher in Beatrice she was a favorite of our family especially our oldest son, Tony! She was great

  3. I taught with Carmen many years ago at Beatrice High School. I remember her as friendly, pleasant, and interested in students and staff. She was a good teacher and a good colleague. My sympathy to her family.

  4. Mrs. Dexter was my Chemistry teacher and she was always encouraging and helpful. She took extra time to help me understand Chemistry and she was also the student teacher for the Math and Science Club that I belonged to. She was an inspiration to not only me but many other students! She will be missed!

  5. Charles and daughters, I was so sorry to see Carmen’s notice in the paper. She was a lovely person. I absolutely enjoyed having known her. She had the best sense of humor. Please know you are in my thoughts.
