    I enjoyed being in Mrs Gelander's English class when I went to Oregon High School. I got to meet her years later when I was Police Chief in Amboy. She was a great teacher and a wonderful woman. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you over her passing.

    As a former administrator and colleague to Mary "Beth" Gelander I offer my condolences to the family. What a wonderful English teacher. The students at Amboy High School were so fortunate to have Beth as a teacher. God has taken her now to teach in Heaven.

    Sorry to hear if your loss Mrs. Gelander was a teacher of mine in 90&91 and even tho I was a hard headed kid her thoughts of her teachings are with me still today. So I believe God needs another great teacher in heaven. May God be with you and your family
