I remember growing up in the church and being in her home ec class in the Junior High. I learned that there were two types of measuring cups; wet and dry. The aprons. I believe former class-mates always talked about the aprons we made in class and how we could short cut the procedure!! I believe Mrs. Knopp had razor vision eyes and I had to redo parts of the apron, the correct way! She was a wonderful person. I always enjoyed seeing her when I was home for a vacation. Rest in Peace Mrs. Knopp.
