We had some rain the past few days. I think between two and three inches have fallen since about mid-week. Thank goodness no hail or high winds came with it, so that was nice. Did have some thunder and lightning though.
Several area families have lost loved ones.
Annette Offutt passed away Sunday after suffering a stroke over a week before. Annette and Keith lived in Munday. She was county and district clerk and was well known throughout the county. A memorial service will be held at a later date.
Etta Searcey also passed away last week after a short illness. was also a Munday person but was well known over here as well. A private burial was held Monday morning at Johnson’s Cemetery at Munday with a memorial service following.
Belle Rogers of Rochester, formerly of Benjamin, also passed away last week. Belle’s health had been failing for several years. Her service was Monday at the Knox City Cemetery.
I also learned today of the death of Ron Stanfield. Ron had been sick for some time but just couldn’t give up until the last few months. He loved to play the drums in the local “bands” and was very good at it. A memorial service for him will be held later in Knox City, where he had resided for several years.
Of course, I send sincere sympathy to all the families of these friends.
Here ‘n there
Bo Milson was back in Duncan, Okla., recently for a week’s visit with her son Shane. She said they got good rains, also.
Deann Lamb is doing really well after her stay in a Wichita Falls hospital. She’s back at “home” at the Munday Nursing Center and mighty glad to be there.
I talked to my friend Peggy Ritchie Monday. She and her husband Guindel live in Wichita Falls, and on Tuesday he had to have a pacemaker. He was doing well on Tuesday night, and if progress continues was to go home. Guindel was reared at Vera and is known by many in this area.
Linda Griffith was in Lubbock on Monday for a cauterizing procedure on the nerves in her back. She says it already feels better than before the procedure, and it appears to be successful.
Shelby Russell has tested positive for Covid-19. She lives in Lubbock and works at a clinic out there and thinks she may have contacted it there. She felt pretty bad for a few days but was better the last I heard. Her mom Kim Moore and nephew D. J. have been quarantined for 14 days, but that time has expired.
My great grandson Dillon is having some pretty rough days, but is under Hospice care, and they are keeping him comfortable. I ask your prayers for him and his family and all the others who are having problems of any kind.
Jill Jackson said she, James and the boys finally “ventured out” away from home after being home several months. They went to Cleburne to visit her mom and other relatives. Jill said they were all doing well, as are James’ parents and other family members who live at Vidor.
