Florence News 05/13/2021


 Good morning from the Florence area. It’s a lovely Monday morning as I’m writing for the Thursday paper.

  My company this past week was: Glenda Sullivan, Denny and Mary Lou Bowman, Linda Jewell and Bonnie Duckworth.

  Roy and Bonnie had been to Mississippi for their daughter Melissa’s wedding. She brought me the information for the news. Thanks Bonnie.

  Roy and Bonnie Duckworth made a trip to Nettleton, Mississippi, along with Michelle and Kaden McClure, Kiersten and Kaege Cunningham, Marc and Tehya Duckworth, John, Maggie and Lillie Duckworth, and Dorothy and Cooper Howard, to attend the wedding of their daughter, Melissa, to Mr. Robert Jackson. What started out to be a rainy morning turned out to be a beautiful day for an outdoor wedding at the home of the bride and groom. Kiersten and Dorothy were two of the bridesmaids and Kaden and John were two of the groomsmen. Melissa was walked down the aisle by her dad. It was a long trip, but well worth it. While there, Bonnie got to celebrate Mother’s Day with all three of their children.

  Glenda and Patty went to Madison a few times to visit Glenda’s niece, Tracy Seale, while she is at the nursing home and Glenda always takes her a treat from Arby’s or ice cream.

  Ken Byars is improving after a long illness. Happy birthday to Sylvia Byars.

  Roy and Bonnie Duckworth, Judy Lozier, Nancy Johnson, Glenda Sullivan and Seth McFadden had Sunday dinner at Mo’s.

  We attended the funeral for Chuck Pickett and there was a dinner and a visit for his family and friends at the Florence Church of Christ where he and Alberta and family attended for many years. Chuck will be missed. Sympathy to the family and friends.

  Sympathy also to Peggy Chase Sullivan (my sister-in-law). Her son, Larry Shaver from the Rising Sun area, passed away but I don’t know the details yet. Peggy is my husband, Red’s, sister.

  Denny and Mary Lou Bowman, Patty Chase and Glenda Sullivan had breakfast at Granny’s and Mary Lou got to visit with her friend from Rising Sun, Connie Smith.
