Mrs. Sherman is and always will be one of my all-time favorite teachers! She was so encouraging to this country girl as she patiently taught me violin, a real labor of love working on tuning and scales at the very beginning! From String Ensemble to introducing us to the Suzuki method, she constantly kept up with “best practices,” as they are known in today’s jargon. She opened up a world to me that I would otherwise never have known. Decades later, I still play and appreciate classical music. May she play with the angels’ orchestra now.
In fond remembrance,
Louise (Churchill) Brady6

Eunice was my music teacher when I was in the sixth grade. She encouraged me to become a music educator. After graduating college with a degree in music, I joined Eunice in the Freetown/Lakeville school system. Together we made costumes, painted scenery, and with her husband, Gardner, built sets for the many elementary musicals throughout the years. She always had such a positive attitude and teaching music was fun for us and the children! So sorry to hear of her passing, I thought she would live forever! I will miss her!

Had the privilege of having Mrs. Sherman as music teacher for three
years at the Westside School. Though over fifty years have passed, I can still
recall her bright smile and enthusiasm each time she came to the classroom.
One week could be classical music and next time The Ballard of The Green Berets.
She put together a western themed musical, in Mrs. Merrils fifth grade class and I still
find myself on occasion humming some of the songs lyrics. She was representative of
everything a dedicated educator should be. Great memories never disappear!

Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Your mom and dad (grandma and grandpa) were an inspiration of loving and caring for one another while I was growing up on Stetson Street. God bless!

Polly. Thank you for letting us know of Eunie's passing. She and Gardner were truly special people. We always enjoyed their company at any post card event and even had the joy of listening to her piano playing on occasion at the Cape Cod Post Card Club meeting. Eunie and Gardner are together once again.

It looks like heaven has gained another angel. She and Gardner were the silent ones who made things happen at postcard events. We enjoyed her positive attitude at years of Bay State Postcard Club Meetings in addition to Rhode Island and Cape Cod. Rest in peace.
