A Master’s in Education from the University of Dayton completed her educational journey. She was an exemplary, honored and retired elementary teacher who dedicated her life to encouraging young children to read and excel.

Abbie touched the lives of so many people with her genuine smile, her passion for inspiring young children and her willingness to dedicate her life to teaching. She loved Scio and enjoyed spending her entire life raising her family at Abbieville Farm and especially loved all her cats and dogs.

She was a cherished member of the Scio community and will be missed by many.
