For Jeanne DeWilde, the choice to retire after 29 years with Lyons Central School District was a quick one to make — her two adult daughters had both announced that they had babies on the way, and Mrs. DeWilde always knew she wanted to be able to care for her grandchildren whenever they were born. But while the decision was easy, the emotions leading up to her last day in the classroom have been much more difficult to process.
