Remembering one of our own….

Kathy Bechtold

Kathy Bechtold began her teaching career at St. Edward in 1977.  Over the span of 40 years, Mrs. Bechtold was a constant in the second grade.  She taught several generations of St. Edward students. She challenged her students academically, but most importantly, Mrs. Bechtold prepared them to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation and Holy Eucharist. Mrs. Bechtold is not only remembered as a kind, loving and nurturing teacher, but a supportive friend to those who taught with her over the years. Mrs. Bechtold’s smile and easy going spirit will be missed, but she will forever be remembered for the difference she made in the lives of so many.
