Mrs. Dot Grimes...A pleasure to know and a privilege to have as a teacher. I had Mrs. Grimes as a 6th grade teacher at Central Elementary. She was quite Special. This was the fall of ’59 just after Randy’s unfortunate death. Somehow this lady was diligent to her profession and dedicated to her students. Mrs. Grimes was “up close and personal”…she cared and she made a positive difference in my life as she did many others. She attended some of my Little League games with her husband Ralph. She and Mr. Grimes even traveled 100 miles to Sylacauga to see us boys play a Little League All Star game. I will never forget or stop loving this lady. Well done Mrs. Grimes, well done…Bill Blau

Mrs. Grimes taught our kindergarten class at the Log Cabin in 1957 along with Mrs. Garrett. What great ladies they were and many, many children were blessed by their dedication.

Sorry to hear about Mrs. Grimes passing. Had her at Central for several years. If anyone at Central knew their job, that would be Mrs. Grimes. An inspiration to say the least. I took up music because she said I'd be good at it .... thanks for the tip, served me well for over 60 years now.
You will be missed !!
