Rosa Delmás "Totty" Menocal, 88, of Wayne, a Spanish teacher at Radnor High School for 30 years, died Friday, May 30, at home of causes related to aging.
Mrs. Menocal, a 53-year resident of Wayne, was born in Cienfuegos, Cuba. She studied education at the University of Havana, where she earned a doctoral degree in pedagogy in 1948.
After leaving Cuba in 1960, she came to the United States. She taught Spanish at Radnor High until retiring in 1992. She also coached the girls' field hockey and lacrosse teams.
"A natural teacher, her passion was to share her strengths with her students, her friends, and, most of all, with her family, thereby making them smarter and better prepared to handle all the challenges of life," her relatives said in a tribute.
