Tira News by Jan Vaughn for April 12th, 2019



We want to express our sympathy to Pat and Tommy Dickens and family. Pat’s mother, Wanda Elmore, passed away on April 4, 2019. Her service was under the direction of West Oaks Funeral Home on Saturday. Please be in prayer for the family.

Dustin and Natalie Weir spent Saturday night at Robert and Yvonne’s home. On Sunday Dacy, Destri, and Yvonne hosted a baby shower for Everly Rose Weir and her mom and dad, Natalie and Dustin. Everly will be arriving later this month. The shower was well attended and they received many lovely gifts.

Wesley Weir participated in the fashion show benefiting the future C.A.R.E. (Community, Ability, Recreation, Energy) Center on Saturday night.

Joyce Dodd shared that the “Food Angels” brought bags of groceries for the Tira Food Pantry. Also, a monetary contribution was given by another donor. We always appreciate the donations.

Clarissa Clayton brought a pecan cobbler to the community center on Saturday for the meal for the Dickens family. Several people asked for her recipe and it was suggested that she share it for the Tira News. I’ve included her recipe for your enjoyment.

I always need and appreciate input from my friends to help keep me informed of news in our community. If you have any news pertaining to Tira residents, past or present, please contact me, Jan Vaughn, at 903-438-6688 or janvaughn73@gmail.com.
