Local churches continue with limited services following medical directives and online viewing as previously stated. Tonight (Thursday) Bible study at 7 at Clarksbury United Methodist Church will feature Chapter 3 of Revelations.  Always, contact the church office or a member for updated changes.

Our community extends its deepest sympathy to the family of Ella Mae Seamon Poindexter, who died at home Wednesday, Jan. 27. She had been disabled since falling and breaking several bones about a year ago. Born in 1935 in Davie County, she was the third of nine children born to the late J. Alvin and Ethel “Pec” Seamon Seamon of County Line. During most of her youth, she and her family lived off US 64 about one-half mile west of Ridge Road. She attended Society Baptist Church with her family, helped her parents with farming chores, and attended Cool Spring High School. The Seamon family moved to the Mocksville area of Davie County about 1956. For tens of years she made her home in the Advance area of Davie County. Retired as a housekeeper at Bermuda Village, she enjoyed spending time with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandson. A graveside service celebrating her life was held at Bailey’s Chapel United Methodist Church Cemetery Saturday afternoon, Jan. 30; she was laid to rest there beside her son James H. Poindexter, who died unexpectedly July 2018.

We extend our deepest sympathy to the family of Wade Eugene “Gene” Wilson; who died unexpectedly of a heart attack early Saturday morning, Jan. 30, at home. Born in 1955 in Rowan County, he was the third of seven children born to the late Wade “Nick” and Ceola Wilson Wilson of Davie County. For most of his life, he lived on the Wilson family farm off Ridge Road near I-40. In his youth he attended Piney Grove AME Zion Church with his family and attended Davie County schools. He was retired from Thornett Company, where he had worked for a few years at the Winston-Salem location and most of the time at the Statesville location. The owner of vintage cars, Gene loved vintage vehicles and participated in the annual cruise-in at Piney Grove AME Zion Church and other ones in the area.  A memorial service celebrating his life was held last Saturday afternoon at the home of his sister Venessa Cuthrell on the Wilson family farm; interment was in the Piney Grove AME Zion Church Cemetery beside his mother Ceola, who died September 2016.    

Our community sends get-well wishes to Venessa Wilson Cuthrell, who has had to have emergency treatment for bronchitis and pneumonia.  Shirley P. Lewis remains in rehab at Bermuda Village in Advance. Faye Stroud continues to rest at home while under treatment for cancer.  .
