Mrs. Tincee was an icon at BHS and taught so many of us to cook and sew. I still think of her instructions from washing dishes (glasses first-pots last)to preheating the oven for baking goodies (we even broiled a grapefruit once); and stitched clothes simply could not look "home-madey". She taught us how to set a proper table and which fork came first at a meal. Her teachings did not stop with school either. She was also a leader in the Methodist Church where many of us attended. She was a special lady in every sense of the word.

I won't forget spaghetti dinners for birthdays and other special activities at the Sorrell house, as well as her
grits with cheese and "eggs a la goldenrod"! I always think of her and her classes when I sweeten tea or cook certain dishes. She was a special lady and a second mom to many of us as we got together for girls' fun times. I know she is missed!

Mrs. Sorrell was a very sweet lady, who was very good at teaching her cooking and sewing classes. I think I was never meant to sew, however, I can sew a straight seam and that is about all. It was not her teaching or lack thereof; Sewing was something I just didn't enjoy. I did find the cooking and eating part more enjoyable. Mrs. Sorrell was a memorable lady and one I will never forget.
