    Mrs. Ragsdale was a fine teacher. It was my privilege to work with her at Fairview.

    My deepest sympathy to Mona’s family. Ralph was my bus driver when I was attending Fair View School and Mona was my daughter’s teacher in grade school. She was an awesome individual and will be greatly missed by all.

    To Regina and Michelle, Who I knew as friends, Know she will always be watching over you from Heaven!

      My parents always thought so much of of the Tuthill kids and it is so kind of you to offer words of comfort. We spent so many long hours sitting together on the bus, they are among my fondest memories of growing up, you made a long bus ride fun! Again, thank you for thinking of us and making me smile.

    My visits to West Plains every summer wasn’t complete until I spent time with Uncle Ralph, Aunt Mona and Regina and Michelle at their farm in Pottersville. I have a special place in my heart for those times shared and memories made. My deepest condolences to you.

      We love you and miss seeing you as often as we did growing up. Who can forget the hay rides, trips to the river and accidentally falling into the creek, what a great childhood we all had.

    She was a precious soul. I know you all will miss her dearly. She gave me so many great “high school days” memories. I loved her and your whole family. Absolutely one of the best memories I have was staying at your home in Pottersville. Every time I think of her or picture her she has a radiant smile on her face. This ole world lost an angel when Mona passed. I’m saddened for your loss and I’ll be sending prayers and good thoughts. Just picture your Dad awaiting her arrival with heavenly open arms to welcome her. I know she is smiling. Love you!

    Mona and Ralph were my very good friends in 1956 and continued to be part of my most remembered folks. They helped many times while I grew into adulthood and were as close as family. They exemplified the Christian life at all times and were role models for me.
    I often think of Mona and Ralph and it warms my heart to have known such wonderful people.
    I look forward to enjoying eternity with them.

      She loved all her students and would have done anything for all of you. As a teacher now, I can only hope to touch half as many lives as she did. Thank you so much for the kind words.

    I was privileged to be Ms Mina Sue’s Principal at Fairview beginning in the Spring of 1993. I found her to be a dedicated teacher who loved her profession and those she worked with and for. More importantly she demonstrated in her daily life her love for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. That is the best legacy that anyone can ever leave. My prayers are with you and your familybin the days and months ahead. Sincerely, Terrie Honeycutt

    I’m so sorry to hear about your loss. I always grew up hearing stories about how what a wonderful and kind lady she was. I was lucky enough to meet her a few times when she came to visit my grandpa, Lee Ragsdale. Sending prayers and love your way.
