I am so sad to hear of the loss of Mrs. Hitchcock to this world. She was my second and fourth grade teacher at West Wareham School. She is one of my few favorite teachers of all time. May she rest in peace.

You were so loved by all of us at the WW School. My sisters and I were wondering where you were when we didn't see you at the Christmas Fairs for the last 2 or 3 yrs. We never referred to the your church as The Congregational Church... it will always be "Mrs. Hitchcock's Church" to us. I will always remember your gentle explanation that Ms. Kiernan whacked my hand with the yardstick not because I punched Jimmy P. for trying to kiss me, but because I chased him into the boys bathroom to do so. The children in Heaven are Blessed to have you!

A wonderful person and teacher! You couldn't help but love her! Peggy always had a smile on her face and was always so willing to help out in the organizations she belonged to.

I have such fond memories of the West Wareham School, and Mrs. Hitchcock was a big reason why. The fact that I have such beautiful, vivid memories of her 2nd grade classroom is a testament to the impact she had on me and I’m sure many others. I will remember her for her kindness and her smile.

This was my 4th grade teacher. She taught me, my mother, siblings, cousins, nieces, nephews and I know she taught many of you. A fact many may not know is that her quick thinking saved my life. I had a severe anaphylaxis after being stung by several yellow jackets on the playground. I didn't know I was allergic and in fact I was stung before that with no reaction. Mrs. Hitchcock figured out what was happening just in time. Without her I don't think I'd be here. G-d rest her soul.
