Sympathy is extended to the family and friends of LaVal Richey, who passed away on Sept. 10. LaVal was the son of Helen Bertelsen Richey, formerly of the Little York community. Services were Monday, Sept. 15 at 10:30 a.m.

George and Marty Nicol of San Benito, Texas were visitors in the community for a few days when they were called here for LaVal Richey’s service.

Sue Campbell’s sister Alice Conn of California has spent the last week visiting relatives in the community.

Helen Jane Nicol hosted her Card Club for dinner and a mean game of “black jack”, I suppose, last Tuesday evening.

David and Linda Dutton hosted a reunion for the family of Virgil and Edith Higbee on Sunday, Sept. 14 at the Warren/Henderson Farm Bureau Building in Monmouth. There were 44 family members, extended family, and guests from Illinois, Iowa, Arizona, Virginia and the Grand Cayman Islands. Following the potluck meal, those attending introduced themselves and told about their families. Happy birthday was sung to Frances Higbee of Galesburg, who was celebrating her 91st birthday.

Men and women’s clothing, used card fronts, and used postage stamps are needed by the Veteran’s Home in Quincy. They can be left at the Little Cedar Church.

“Stay” is a charming word in a friend’s vocabulary.
