Love and sympathy is extended to the June Rose Boone Crowl family. June Rose, 93, of Collierville, Tenn., passed away on Nov. 11. She was preceded in death by her loving husband of 57 years, George Crowl. Mrs. Crowl is survived by her three children, Robert W. Crowl (Jane), Patty Burkett (Tom) and Mark Crowl (Cindy), six grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren.
Mrs. Crowl was an active member at Collierville United Methodist Church as well as a member of the Collierville Contemporary Club. When she wasn’t playing bridge with her close friends, she could be found either talking on the phone with her family and friends or just sitting with them listening and swapping stories.
There will be a graveside service on Friday, November 20 at 2 pm at Magnolia Cemetery, 435 South Mount Pleasant Road in Collierville.
Martha Box had a pizza party Sunday for her grands and nieces and nephews. The activities included making tree ornaments like they did in the old days. The kids picked up pine cones and decorated them with paint and glitter. They are going to have another “decorate tree day” after Thanksgiving. All the kids love going to Martha’s because she feeds them good and is so much fun to be around.
She said her sister, Joyce Stevens hasn’t been feeling up to par with a stomach virus she had for a couple of days, but is better as of this writing.

Faye Hartley said this past week has been boring compared to what it’s going to be next week. Faye has over 100 pans of rolls to do and she’s only off on Thursday that week. As you can tell by having over 100 pans to cook and deliver, she makes some delicious rolls! Trust me, I know how good they are!
Thought for the day…..One of the most important trips a man can make is that involved in meeting the other fellow half way.
Recipe of the Week:
Glazed Sweet Potatoes
• 1/2 cup orange marmalade
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
• 6 sweet potatoes (small whole) cooked or canned
Melt marmalade in a pan over low heat. Stir in cinnamon and salt and then add sweet potatoes. Cook over low heat, turning sweet potatoes several times, until they are well coated and most of the marmalade is absorbed. About six minutes.
