Mary Lou Akins let me know about a cousin of ours passing away last week. Some of you will remember Floy (Johnson) Lennington who lived in Miller Grove many years ago. She was born Floy Aylene Johnson, the daughter of Jim and Fannie (Junell) Johnson, in Miller Grove, on Feb. 16, 1923. Floy passed away on Sept. 17 at her home. The funeral was held Tuesday afternoon at Donnelly’s Colonial Funeral Home in Dallas with burial in Grove Hill Cemetery. She was preceded in death by two sisters and seven brothers. She is survived by two children and several grandchildren.
I am also sorry to hear about Dahlia V. Dicken’s passing last week. She was born in Miller Grove on Aug. 29, 1930, the daughter of Burl and Blanche (Stapleton) Wood. Most people remember Dahlia V. and husband Dewey Dicken. They were married in Miller Grove on June 5, 1948. Dahlia V. was buried Sep. 16th in Greenview Cemetery. Her sisters, Patsy Yates and Barbara Lennon, are both Miller Grove locals.
A big thank you goes out to Mr. and Mrs. Elwood Watts. They kindly donated enough materials to finish the chain-link fence on the south side of the cemetery.
Remember, if anyone has any pictures of Miller Grove School activities I would love to borrow them to make a copy for our school history book.
Sunday after church, I saw Yvonne Dicken at Los Mochis restaurant in Sulphur Springs with some of her friends. She said the only thing wrong with my news column was that it needed to be a little longer! I will take that compliment any time! Thank you, Yvonne.
Everyone who knows me knows that I like to eat. Saturday I went over to the Lone Oak Grocery Store and had a hamburger and fries. If you haven’t eaten there you should go. I don’t eat there very often for the simple fact of not thinking about it being there.
