She was my teacher in 5th grade which was over 20 years ago and to this day she left in me many lessons of life. She will be dearly missed

Mrs Bacher was a very special lady with deep and profound insight, eidel and gentle ways and a twinkle in her eye.

We feel honoured that Hashem brought her to SA as part of our chinuch program for all ages.

We will miss her warmth, acceptance and happy chuckle.

Definitely good company for H’

Warm home
