Faye And Daughter, Kristie, Are Very Busy Women

By Patsy Deck

August has been some beautiful and a tab bit cooler weather so far. I’ve enjoyed sitting out side on my porch and waving at the cars that go by.

Monroe Keith Beardain, age 83, passed away Tuesday, July 28, 2020, at the Tallahatchie General Extended Care Facility. Born March 18, 1937 in Enid, he was the son of the late, Irvin Countess Beardain and Daisy Bell Estridge Beardain.

He is survived by his wife, Willie Mae McGarrity Beardian; daughter, Angela Beardain, of Grenada; son, Monroe Keith Beardain, Jr., of Enid; four stepchildren, Deborah Sanders (Cotton), of Enid, Glenda Newton (Jim), of Charleston, Charlotte Campbell (David), of Carrollton and Ben Chambers (Debbie), of Batesville; one brother,  I. C. Beardain of Enid; four grandchildren, Tripp Beardain and Gracie Beardain of Oxford, Lauralee Beardain of Grenada and Lexie Ray Langham of Grenada; and seven great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by one brother, Johnny Bill Beardain.

Christian love and sympathy to the Jessie Coffee family. Jessie was a good friend of mine for many years during the times we worked together at the Tillatoba truck stop. We remained friends after we both left. Jessie had suffered with Alzheimer’s her last few years here on this earth. You may be gone my sweet friend, but never will you be forgotten.

Wednesday night our supper guests were Frankie and Bradley Holliday and Donna Garripoli from Grenada. Frankie brought up Zaxby’s chicken and all the trimmings; my handsome brother-in- law, Tommy “T-Man” Hudson,   sent some of his home grown tomatoes; and Donna brought a delicious strawberry cake and ice cream for David’s birthday. Thank you girls for this delicious supper and for the wonderful time.

Sadie Harper is all smiles these days and she has a right to be. Her great-great niece was born Saturday morning, August 1, and they named her Sadie Evelyn Massa. They are going to call her Sadie. What an honor for you Sadie.

Martha Box says she is staying home and disagrees with the shut down and mask.  Says she is going forward and working it out. Her husband, Honey, has been gone five years the 16th of this month and you know Mailbox never was wrong. He told her to “paint the picture, Sugar” so she is in the studio working it out. She does some pretty good work too, I think!

Joyce Stevens is asking for prayers for her daughter, Angie Waldo. Angie has pneumonia and still has a lot of infection in her body. Praying for you, sweet girl.

Faye Hartley said they haven’t done anything this week but work. Faye has been cutting trees and cleaning off a fence row after she gets home from work and Kristie, their daughter, is redoing  their cabinets. These two girls just work, work, work.

I talked to Trudy Simmons by phone to see if she had any news and she said she hasn’t been anywhere visiting or done anything lately. I told her I couldn’t believe she had not been canning anything. Boy,  she perked up then and started telling me about making pepper jelly, pepper relish, fig preserves she has made. She was waiting on someone to bring her some pears.

Happy birthday to Georgia Tellis, who celebrates the 4th. I dare not tell her age, but she is still able to get up and go, just maybe not as far as she could at one time. My friend, Jordan McKinney, celebrates the 14th and Sherry Anderson and Will Tillman share a birthday on the 16th. I pray you all have a great day celebrating your special day.

Thought for the day: He who loses money loses much. He who loses a friend loses more, but he who loses faith loses all.
