ROCKFORD - Two Parkway Elementary School second-grade teachers are being called "angels" and "lifesavers" after donating vital organs to people close to them.

Kirby donated to her mother, Pat Koeller, 66, St. Paris. Brandt intended to donate to a total stranger but ended up donating to family friend Ted Bollenbacher, 62, Rockford. [More]
