Corinthian Clippings for 1977
WHEELER GROVE (By: Mrs. James Evans)
MRS. EVANS HOME FROM CALIFORNIA
Many of you have told me you have been missing these items for the past few weeks. As some of you know, I have been visiting relatives in California.
I drove through and two cousins, Mrs. Leo Melton and Mrs. Cleo McClary, went with me.
We visited my sister, Mrs. Shirley Montean Wickland in El Tero; Mr. and Mrs.. Robert Bruiner and children in Tuscon; my brother and family, Mr. and Mrs.. Norbert Lindsey, Tommy and Jerry, in Long Beach; and my aunt and family, Mrs. Geneva Johnston Quinby, Fred Quinby, Mary, Angelia and Lindsey in Temple City.
Geneva came home with us and is visiting in our home and her sister, Mrs. Easter Davis, as well as other relatives of this area.
While on the trip we visited such places as The Painted Desert and Petrified Forest in Arizona; the Hollywood Wax Museum, Knotts Berry Farm, and so on.. To put it in the words of Cleo and Leo, “We had a ball,” but I for one am glad to be home.
This week a long time resident of this community, Mr. Ollie Clark, suddenly passed away after a long heart condition. So to the family we of the community do extend deepest sympathy.
Mrs. Easter Davis is visiting this week in the home of her son and family, Mr. and Mrs. Dewayne Davis and children in Richmond, Virginia.
Other than Mrs. Quinby, visitors in our home during the week were Mr. and Mrs. Milton Lindsey, Mr. and Mrs. Tommy Foeshee, Lonita Lidsey, and Garry, Lavera Brown, Olga Martin, Madge Wilkinson, and Leo Melton, among others.
Glad to report that Mr. Roger Conn is doing real well following surgery in the Magnolia Hospital.
Also glad to report that Mrs. Divene Martin Roper is doing real well in the Baptist Hospital in Memphis following surgery. Her mother, Mrs. Olga Martin and brother and family, Mr. and Mrs. Darnell Martin have been visiting with her there.
Mr. Clarence Green was transferred the first of this week from the Magnolia Hospital to the hospital in Tupelo and will be undergoing tests there for a few days.
Mr. and Mrs. James Evans visited Sunday afternoon in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Shannon Flynn and Molly in Corinth. The Flynns will be leaving Corinth soon for Water Valley where he will become the administrator of the hospital, as well as the Care Inn there. We will miss them here as I know will many others, but we wish them lots of luck in their new work.
Mrs. Geneva Quinby of Temple City, California, visited this week in the home of Mrs. Madge Wilkinson and Mrs. Leo Melton and during the week they visited in the home of their Uncle J.C. “Gook” Jobe.
Mrs. Olga Martin and Mrs. Mildred Evans visited Mrs. Joe Roper in the Baptist Hospital in Memphis Wednesday of this week.
