Oh my Gosh! I hate to hear Mrs. Osborne (Bates) is gone. She was such a key part of my early youth and that of my sister, Karen Frazier. She came to visit my parents in our home, and always took an interest in us, decade after we had left her classroom. A true icon of Kilgore Schools to us and to so many! Rest in well earned peace Ms. O.

Mrs. Osborne was my second grade teacher at Kilgore Heights. We moved to Kilgore just before my second grade year in 1971. My memories of the second grade was so good! How blessed I was to have a kind Christian lady as my teacher in the classroom.

Dorothy was such a lovely person here on this earth. So sweet and gentle ....like a beautiful breeze flowing to everyone who knew her. A kind soul who loved her family with everything in her. Judy and Bill, Emily and Katie...your loss is great but the things she left behind are in all of you. Her legacy goes on and on. All the children whose lives she impacted with her wonderful teaching! That greatness is impossible to measure. And she is in your future. My heart breaks for you...I am so very sorry. May the Lord give you all peace and hold you close to Himself. My prayers are with you.
