  1. Congratulations Miss Tilmont on your 99th Birthday – how very wonderful – I bet you were a fabulous teacher!! God Bless You always

  2. I saw Mrs. Tilmont at the Riverton school 100th anniversary 4th of July a few years back after not seeing her for about 40 years. As I walked up to her she said, “hi, Jamie.” I was astounded and very touched that she would remember me after so long. A dear sweet woman with an amazing memory! Happy 99th birthday!
