  •     So very sorry to read about Mrs.Osterberg’s passing. She was undoubtedly one of the kindest and nicest people I think I have ever met, simply a joy to be around. She was largely responsible for making 92 Jackson Street the “place to be” growing up. Thank you Mrs. Osterberg for all the fun times and wonderful memories through the years. My sincerest condolences to the entire Osterberg family.

  • To the Osterberg Family:  I knew Myrtice and Dale since I was a child.  There were no better or nicer folks than they were.  You have our sincere sympathy. Gary and Sandy Goulet

  • Our two sons, Edmond and Curt, went to Countryside School in the mid sixties and I can still see her driving the station wagon picking up the kids. She was a wonderful, caring person and the kids all loved her. Our sympathy to her family.

  • To the Osterberg and LeCompte families – Sincerest sympathy to you all on the passing of a lovely lady. She will be missed. 
    Sincerely, Nancy Libby Adams

  • So very sorry to hear of Mrs. Osterberg’s passing. I was one of her students at Countryside (around 1965 or so). A few years later, my family moved into the Stanley Street area, and would see her, and she would ask how school was going for me. A great teacher and person
