Homemaker’s enjoy trip to Jenny Wiley Theater


Sorry, I’ve been too busy, out of town and haven’t had time to write a column for the last couple of weeks.

A few things I recall happening are the wedding of Steven Pratt and Beth Smith, which was reported to have been a lovely ceremony with many family members and friends in attendance. We w ish the newlyweds the best in their new lives together.

We’re glad that Perkins Branch resident, Randy Caudill, got good results from his recent health tests and Mary Jo Blair’s tests also came back good.

The Letcher Area Homemakers’s recent trip to the Jenny Wiley Theater and dinner was reported to be a fun-filled evening, and enjoyed by all who made the trip.

We’re glad that Rob Campbell is feeling better after a recent case of pneumonia. Ardelia Branson is home from Letcher Manor and her mother, Della Blair, is helping her out.

My first cousin, Barry Marshall of Morehead, has developed health problems and moved back to Wheelersburg, Ohio, where his parents, Bill and Elva Pridemore Marshall, live.

He has been on the prayer list at many local churches and we were happy to hear that he had been attending his father and mother’s church in Ohio, and was saved and became a member there.

Billy, Deanna, Penny and India Smith of California were recently here visiting Billy’s mother, Martha Jones Smith and other family members. While here they attended their niece, Beth Smith’s wedding.

During the week of July 4, Enis, Kyra and Levi Blair of Indiana, were here visiting Mary Helen Blair, Bobbie Adams and other family and friends.

Kyra’s daughter, Cody and her husband came in the following week to visit here.

Two of the late Bennie and Bessie Blair’s children, Ebb and Beulah, were here visiting during the week of July 4.

Gerald and Cathy Blair are proud, new grandparents. Their daughter, Allison, and her husband, recently had a baby. Congratulations to the new parents who live on Blair Branch.

Bob, Jessie Hunter and I, Bonita, Liberty and Noah, Don and Coreen Pridemore, all spent last week at Tybee Island, Ga.

We enjoyed biking, walking the beach, swimming and being together. We went to Savannah one day and walked down River Street, toured Fort Jackson and Fort Pulaski.

Jessie, Hunter and Noah climbed the Lighthouse and while the girls and Noah took a seashell hunting tour, Bob, Dad and Hunter drove out to the big Bass Pro Shop to look around.

We had a nice trip, but were sad to learn that Bob’s uncle, George M. Adams, Jr., had passed away the day before we headed home.

Junior hasn’t been doing well for awhile because of kidney problems, but it still seemed a shock to learn of his passing.

He was born and reared in the coal camps on Carbon Glow, and was married to Alice Stacy for 60 years. Many know their children, Lonnie, Debreal, Joy Faye, Gary Dean, Darlene, Lavonne, Madge and Little Gary.

Hog-Eye and Alice have a large family of nearly 50 direct descendants from the children down to grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

A large crowd came out both the night of visitation and the day of the funeral, which was held at his church, Letcher Independent Baptist Church at Jeremiah.

Junior was a brother to Bill and Luther Adams, Susie Raglin, Hazel Adams, Opal Banks and Danola Bell. All but Susie were able to attend the funeral.

Susie had fallen and wasn’t able to be there. She is getting a little better, and thankfully didn’t break any bones.

Our sympathy goes out to the entire Adams family during their sorrow.
