We’ve had a very cold week but we’re fortunate to have bright sunshine a lot. Those dark days don’t contribute to my poor vision. I received a real good magnifying glass from a lady Brenda, who works for the Blind of Missouri. She has severe vision problems, also.
We are saddened by the recent deaths of Norwood people, Bob Owens and Eva Wright. Eva is a neighbor and long time friend. I’ve known of Bob for years but never was close. I knew his wife and children. Bob was laid to rest this week and Eva’s funeral will be Monday at 2 p.m. at Corinth Baptist Church in Macomb.
I hear I made a mistake last week concerning the parents of the little Amos baby. Gary and Diane Amos are the paternal grandparents, not the parents.
We attended our great grandson, Riley Vaughan’s birthday celebration last Saturday night at his home at Dawson. Several people were there. We missed his grandpa, Harold Vaughan as he wasn’t able to come, but he’s doing better for which we are thankful.
Louise Murr, my dear friend, and another friend, Florence Harris, celebrated their birthdays Friday at the Senior Center in Hartville, Friday. Many of their relatives attended. In fact, Florence’s daughter cooks at the center. It was a delicious meal. Some teacher friends were present. Louise and Florence were both teachers in Wright County and other places. Karen Sinnings, Karma Murr, daughters of Louise, Ruth Bradshaw, and Bob Fields and wife. Bob’s last job was school superintendent at Cabool School. Sharon Marler was there also. We had a good visit with old friends. Hartville was our home for sixteen and a half years. That’s been eighteen years ago.
Karen Conley, granddaughter of the late Beulah (Vaughan) Sanders is very ill. She lives in Mountain Grove. Karen and Harold Vaughan are first cousins. Remember her in your prayers.
Pauline Bradshaw is enjoying her new kitchen. Her family helped re-do the old one and she loves it. Glad she has good help.
Britany Holt is back in the hospital and in critical condition.
I heard there was lots of good gospel singing Friday at the Senior Citizen Center in Mountain Grove.
Sorry to hear of the death of Mrs. Cleaver who used to write for the Senior Citizens. I always read her items and thought she must be a nice person.
News seems scarce this week so maybe next week will be better.
