Miller Grove News for Feb. 24, 2010

E-mail Print PDF
There isn’t much news this week in Miller Grove. Things have been sort of slow in the community.

Last week when I mentioned Demp and Marlene Sturdevant, I noticed a typo after I had sent in the column. I said that they moved to Miller Grove from “Louisville”, but the actual spelling is “Lewisville” (in Denton County).

Happy belated birthday to Mr. Ed Basye. His birthday was last Tuesday. This week’s birthdays are Kelly (House) Mabe on Feb. 22 and Shelly (Ragan) Crow on Feb. 23.

Happy 51st Anniversary to William and Bertha Ann Sparks on Feb. 21.

I hated to hear that Nadine (Wright) Higginbotham passed away. She died in Greenville on Sunday, Feb. 21, after a long battle with cancer. Her funeral was held today at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 24, with visitation prior to services at West Oaks Funeral Home. Interment will be at the Barker Cemetery in the Greenview community. She was born July 15, 1936, the daughter of Haskell Prentis “Hack” Wright and Mamie Clyde (Dowdy) Wright. Her husband, Bobby Higginbotham, preceded her in death in 2009. Her grandchildren (Julie, Michael, and Brian) have all attended Miller Grove School.

The Miller Grove FFA Chapter will be holding its annual “Miller Grove International” livestock show on tonight beginning at 6 p.m. This show is a warm-up for the students showing animals in this week’s Northeast Texas Livestock Association Junior Market Show at the Civic Center. Stew will be served before the showing starts, and by the looks of the weather it will be a good night for stew.

I visited with Faye Tipps on Sunday afternoon. She is still in rehab at Hopkins County Memorial Hospital. She takes therapy each day and will come home soon. When I was there she had a room full of company.

There wasn’t as many people at the Miller Grove Water Supply Corporation barbecue supper Saturday night as there has been in the past. There were several vacant seats throughout the gym. One person told me that there were more than 90 people there. Jim Potts and Eric Mabe were re-elected to serve on the board, and the meeting was over by 7 p.m.

August will mark the 150th anniversary of the land being deeded to the Miller Grove School. The school is planning to do something special for the event and publish a pictorial history book to chronicle the long and vibrant history of the school. I will have more details on this in the near future.

Anyone who has previously attended or taught at Miller Grove School is welcome to submit their contact information (name, address, phone number, and e-mail address) to the school because Mrs. Irby is hoping to start an alumni association. You can call the school with the information or send via e-mail. The e-mail address is This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

As you travel the highways and byways, don’t forget that all roads lead home and back to Miller Grove. Please send me any newsworthy information. My e-mail address is This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
