Janie Lewis, Dona Shaw, and Ruthann Ray were at Wesley House for a parade for the residents on Saturday, April 18th. Janie reported that there were about 100 cars with signs and balloons, several police, sheriff, and EMS vehicles, a tractor, and horses. She says, “It was a lot of fun for everyone.” Dona and Ruthann’s mother, Patsy Shaw (Janie‘s sister-in-law), is among the residents there.
Yvonne Weir shared, “We celebrated Everly’s first birthday on the computer, with all of the family watching and chiming in. She loved all the paper in the sacks and she really liked the cake, but she was very neat about eating it.” Everly is the daughter of Dustin and Natalie Weir. Yvonne adds, “Sarah visited us on Sunday.”
We want to express our appreciation to the anonymous donor who left masks and books for the Tira Food Pantry.
Chip’s brother, John Vaughn, came over on Sunday afternoon to see his mother, Grace, and to visit with us all.
I had a phone call from Betty Earlene (Birmingham) Holcomb. She enjoys reading the Tira News and recalls knowing some Watsons from the Tira area. She mentioned a Mr. Watson who was a minister at their Baptist church, where her mother, Mamie Birmingham, played the piano. She lives in the Dallas area, but grew up in the Pacio community in Delta county. If you remember Betty or her family, please let me know. She would enjoy visiting with you.
That’s all I know for now. I hope everyone is doing well and I look forward to having more to report sometime soon.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
