Both of my daughters graduated from Foothill High and both of them were touched immeasurably by the incandescent Ms Koobatian. My eldest started with her in choir in 1996 and my youngest has followed in Ms Koobatian's musical career footsteps. We have all lost a beautiful soul who made everyone she touched a better person.

Thank you for writing about Mrs. K. She was a spectacular woman. She was my vocal director for the Spring Musical Throughly Modern Millie, that I partcipated in back in 2008. She was the strongest, kindest, most loving person I ever knew. So lucky to have known her and to learn from her musicianship. She was and still is an inspiration to all of us.

JoAnn and I sang for many years together in a jazz quartet called CornerPocket. She had the most beautiful soprano ever. Clear, unyielding, pure, perfect. Her notes would extend well beyond the staff line, just like her impact on her friends, family, and students. I'm so sad that she is gone. I am also a teacher, and I understand how crushed her students are right now. She would be so proud of you guys...keep on singing. She did.
