She was my 5th grade teacher in 1983 at Windsor Woods Elementary. I remember her well, and can still picture in my mind where I say in her classroom. I learned a lot that year, including over 200 bones in the human body. We had to name and point them out on the skeleton she had in her classroom. She was a great teacher who led many students to love biology and science. My heartfelt condolences for the family.

I have never forgotten the things Mrs. Gillikin taught me 35 years ago. She taught my siblings as well, and even 20 years later, when I ran into her, she remembered us. What a great contribution she made to this community.
