County Line: Society pastor welcomed with community cookout

By Shirley Thorne

County Line Correspondent

Our community and surrounding area continue to battle the coronavirus.  More and more folks get vaccinated, the number of hospitalizations and the number of deaths continue to decrease. Piney Grove AME Zion folks had a successful second vaccinationfollow-up event last Friday.

County Liners continue to venture out a little more each week. As photos show, folks of all ages enjoyed the community cookout hosted by Society Baptist Church Saturday afternoon.     

Our community extends sympathy to the family of Grace Wooten Taylor, who died at home Saturday, May 8. The youngest and last surviving of seven children, she was born in Davie County to the late Pearl and Annie Keller Wooten of County Line Road near NC 901.  She attended Clarksbury United Methodist Church with her family and attended Cool Spring High School. In 1946 she married Roy Wesley Taylor; the couple settled on Cana Road and reared their four children. Grace enjoyed canning the fruits of her gardening, working with her flowers, and spending time with her family. A graveside service celebrating her life was held Wednesday morning of last week in the cemetery of Union Chapel United Methodist Church, where she was an active member;  she was laid to rest beside her beloved Roy, who died May 2000.

We send get-well wishes to Terry Correll, who has a serious infection at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center.  Amanda Rogers is recuperating at home.

Join us in prayer for the Lord’s divine healing and blessings upon Terry, Amanda, and other residents who are having health problems. Pray for the Lord’s comfort and blessings upon the family of Grace as they adjust to life without her.  Remember in prayer David Burgess’ daughter Kelly; who is 26-weeks pregnant, has a serious infection, and has been at Forsyth Medical Center. Continue to pray for those affected by the coronavirus.

It’s graduation time and we will again honor our graduates this year. If you are, or know of, a graduate or one receiving special recognition or a certificate the past year; please email a photo with information to sdtlink@hotmail.com to be included in our tribute to our students.
