Teacher victim had lust for life
A TEACHER with three children and eight grandchildren was among the victims of the deadly mass shooting at a Texas high school.
Cynthia Tisdale’s niece, Leia Olinde, said she was like a mother to her and helped her shop for wedding dresses last year. “She helped me put it on, she helped fix my hair,” Ms Olinde said. “She was wonderful. She was just so loving. I’ve never met a woman who loved her family so much.”
Ms Tisdale was married to her husband for close to 40 years and the couple had three children and eight grandchildren.
Other confirmed victims included students Sabika Sheikh, Chris Stone, Kim Vaughan, Angelique Ramirez, Aaron Kyle McLeod, Christian Garcia and Shana Fisher.
Sabika Sheikh was a foreign exchange student from Pakistan. Megan Lysaght, of the Kennedy-Lugar Youth Exchange and Study program, said they were devastated by the loss. “We will remember Sabika in our thoughts and prayers,” she wrote.
