Stauffer's generosity

Dear Editor:For a Downey school to have the name "Mary Stauffer" is most appropriate as she has been most generous and caring for students, schools and the community. The help to local students as they prepare for college is most commendable. In her 95 years Dr. Mary has done so much for schools and all of the community. She and my husband, Edward, were together in high school and Ohio State in the 1930s. Sixty years ago both her and our families settled in Downey. She and her husband, Dr. Floyd Stauffer, raised their five outstanding children while serving as a dedicated, caring physician. Also she gave much time as a leader and contributor to charitable and service organizations. Mary certainly deserves much recognition and acclaim for all she has done for students, schools and our fine Downey community. Arlene Hofmayer Downey
