Ms. Gallimore was more than my Algebra II teacher, we attended church together. She was the kind of teacher that made us feel that each of us was her only student. I’m glad she got to live a long life.

This is from Catherine Humphrey: Tell them that I love them and the Gallimore's are my best friends. Catherine would like to send a card but does not have James' or Claudia's address. Please send if possible.

Emma Gallimore leaves behind a lasting legacy of public service and dedication to her teaching profession and to the thousands of students that had the privilege of her instruction.

I was never under her guidance as a student. 'Wish I had been. Perhaps I would have learned math in more detail than I did, especially with the simple formulas like Pi are round; Cornbread r square. She could have corrected me at an early age.

She was a great lady. an accomplished educator, and and overall humanitarian. Many of you had the good fortune of being one of her students. I knew her mostly as one of our greatest supporters of our high school group mini-reunions. She will be sorely missed and remembered for her life's work.

Ms. Gallimore was my math teacher at Pico Terrace High School- She was a great teacher of math and she was very concerned that her students had the understanding of math.. Her character was strong and yet she was gentle to insure we understood the math problem. We will miss this fine and great lady.
We will miss her at our Class 1960 Reunions....

I had the privilege of being one of Ms. Gallimore's students. She was a great teacher, she even made algebra seem easy for me, that in itself says a lot for her skills as a teacher. I really got to know her through attending High School Reunions with my husband. We became friends. She was a sweet and caring person. She will be missed.
