My deepest sympathies to the family. Mrs. Pitman was my music teacher for many years at Arcadia School and I remember her fondly as she patiently taught us to play the Ukulele and Recorder. She was always very sweet, kind and patient. I had a lovely chat with her at the Arcadia 50th year reunion, it was nice to see her again.
