    Ms. Rogers was my 7th grade teacher, and I will never forget how she presented kindness with every situation.

    The one thing I will remember about Abby from our days at Woburn High is that she was one of the nicest people ever. She always had a smile on her face. I’m so sorry to hear that she is gone. Sending love and strength to all of her loved ones.

  6. Abby was my seventh grade history teacher. She was enthusiastic about her teaching and the dedication she had for our sister school in South Africa had a lasting effect on me as a student. Her presence will be greatly missed in the community. We lost a beautiful soul. My prayers are with her family and friends during this difficult time.

    Abby was one of the most kind people I’ve ever met. Never once did I see her that she wasn’t perfectly angelic. Some will say, I hope you find peace. I watched her live peace. You are sorely missed Abby.
    Love your adoring friend forever,
    Danny Kelley

    Abby, was kind, funny, and giving person. Her absence will be felt in my life and in her school community. She always had a smile and a kind word to say even in her most difficult times. She was loved by her students and colleagues. We love you Abby, I hope you have found peace. ❤️❤️❤️

  9. Abby was a first year teacher when I was in seventh grade. Mr Rogers had just started teaching at sms half way through the year and I recall rumors of their love as it blossomed. I remember Abby as someone who truly cared about her students and as someone who radiated light and love. She was one of my sweetest teachers and I will always remember her. My thoughts are with her beautiful daughters and the rest of her family 💜
