Siloam News

SILOAM — Denver, Denver who? …….Well, the Panthers tried!!!!

Fay Riddle had company on Friday. Her daughter along with her husband and two grandsons came up from Mebane and spent the day, Fay is an excellent cook and I really think they visited to see if she had lost her touch in the kitchen! Well, she hadn’t. The menu sounded great.

The writer’s sister-in-law, Sandra had surgery recently. Cleve is doing a good job with the housekeeping duties.

My Sunday School class was so busy before Christmas that we didn’t have a class party. Well, we did that last week. We went down to Shorty’s Store in Siloam and had a delicious lunch. Their hospitality was so good and so was the food. We all enjoyed the time spent together and they finally got a small gift from their teacher! And we ran into several other Siloamese while we were there.

Prior to beginning the news, I learned that Mrs. Linda (Danny) Hardy had died. Danny and Linda were former residents of our community before moving to Winston Salem.

And then I received a call about the death of Charles Golding. He and his wife Judith lived in the Zephyr community and I worked with them at Mountain Park School. Charles was well known as the man who grew and gave away beets. He never sold them, but would call and say “come and get some beets.” I canned and shared many cans of beets from his garden. He will be missed.

Our sympathy and best wishes go out to Mildred Adams, a lady in my Sunday School class. Her sister, Mae Creasy died last week. They were sisters and the best of friends.

Mae was unable to be at church on Sunday. Maybe she will soon be feeling better.

And Ritchie Day had a birthday on Sunday! Now, I don’t know his age, but I would guess that he is somewhere between 40 and 80. That would be close! He is such a Carolina fan that I told him all the students at NCSU were cheering that he is now a year older. Other than being such a dedicated UNC fan, he is really o.k.
