Washington County Enterprise-Leader - - COMMUNITY - MARIE ROY WCN Colum­nist

The Lin­coln Se­nior Cen­ter will host a Veter­ans Day cel­e­bra­tion on Thurs­day, Nov. 8. Veter­ans please bring a ser­vice pic­ture and a write-up of ser­vice mem­o­ries to share. The Gar­rett Singers will be per­form­ing at 9:30 a.m. Each vet­eran and their fam­ily are in­vited to en­joy lunch at the Cen­ter and each vet­eran will be rec­og­nized with a spe­cial pre­sen­ta­tion.

Roy Rich, of Van Buren, died on Oct. 24, just nine days be­fore his 102nd birth­day. He was born on the fam­ily farm in Lin­coln, and grew up in the Van Buren area. He served three years in the South Pa­cific dur­ing World War II.

When he came home from the war, he mar­ried his beloved Avon, who pre­ceded him in death after 69 years of mar­ried life.

Roy is sur­vived by his two chil­dren, Mike and Rhonda; three grand­chil­dren and their spouses; also nine great-grand­chil­dren.

Roy lived a good, long, Chris­tian life and leaves his ex­am­ples and many good mem­o­ries, for all who fol­low.

There was no Kitchen Band Tues­day, but hope­fully we will con­tinue meet­ing in Novem­ber.

I was all ready to go Tues­day, when my neighbor came by for a short visit, then Ed­win came, and soon, Anna came. They started to visit, which I fully en­joyed, and it was too late to go, any­way, no trip for noth­ing. Anna and Ed­win fin­ished pick­ing up the wal­nuts in the front yard, so I got to mow that af­ter­noon. The mower found some wal­nuts they had missed. Those hard­wood maple leaves cov­ered them up.

My squir­rel will find any oth­ers missed, and I will pull up lit­tle trees next Spring where he has buried them.

Happy birth­day to Matt Pinker­ton, Wil­lis Win­kler, Bran­don Bradley, John Griscom, Wes­ley Martsching, Pa­trick Wooton, Jean Helm, Jimmy Cham­b­liss, Kathy Farmer, Tracy Pitts, Ivan Cush­ing, Dick Wat­son.

Happy an­niver­sary to Paul and Wanda Brake­bill.

Happy years, all!
