Maybe you and your classmates can send her flowers (or a cookie bouquet ) to just remind her that while she may not be in the professor capacity any longer, her influence will always be remembered by you.
I don't think people realize how important appreciation is... many people would have heard that she was leaving and brushed it off because it doesn't directly involve them. I think it's great that you are willing to be honest with her about her impact on you.

It stinks that you can't be able to be open in some professions and hopefully she will find a great career as a teacher somewhere that will appreciate her. I say sure stay close to her b/c she will surely be a really great source of inspiration and help but don't insert yourself in the situation if you can help it.
