Shanlyn Nichols and other members of Piney Grove AME Zion Church were inspired by a sermon on helping others by Vickie Turner-Brown last fall to help the homeless and others of need. After distributing bath bags containing toiletries and snacks to the homeless, Shanlyn with help from Pastor John Phifer and other church members, folks in the community, and area businesses collected donations to buy 100 blankets. Shanlyn presented the blankets to RHA Health Services plus Fifth Street Ministries and Boys and Girls Clubs of the Piedmont.
Calvary Baptist will have only Sunday morning worship services until March.
Josh and Callahan Koontz Bowers welcomed home their son Grayson Samuel after a 156-day stay in neo-natal care of Forsyth Medical Center following his early birth in August. Weighing 1 lb. 9 oz. at birth, Grayson overcame many obstacles with the help of a medical staff and God’s blessing. His parents and big brother Parker appreciate the prayers, food, and other acts of kindness. Parker is excited to have Grayson at home and Grayson is doing well with just some oxygen help. All of us in County Line send our best wishes.
Our community extends sympathy to the family of William Eugene “Gene” Snow; who died Saturday, Jan.15 at Rosewood Assisted Living Center of Harmony after a stay of a few days. One of 10 children, he was born in In 1932 in Iredell County to the late J.B. and Billie Davidson Snow of Olin. He attended Harmony High and served in the U. S. Army. Shortly after his discharge, he married Margelene “Margie” Holton, who died Dec. 2010. The couple and their two children made their home in Forsyth County; after retirement the couple settled on the Holton family homeplace on NC 901 near Sheffield Road. They joined in worship at Clarksbury Methodist, where Gene was a faithful member, Sunday school, and sanctuary choir. A service celebrating his life was held Wednesday afternoon of last week at Clarksbury; a private family committal service followed at Westlawn Memorial Gardens of Clemmons, where he joined Margie in eternal rest.
Alice C. Waugh remains in rehab at Davie Nursing and Rehabilitation Center of Mocksville. Join us in prayer for the Lord’s divine healing upon Alice and other residents who are having health problems. Pray for the Lord’s comfort and strength upon the family of Gene as they deeply miss his presence in their lives.
Remember in prayer Carla and Lawrence Smith and son Houstin in the death of Carla’s parents; married for 75 years, her mother Norma Mae Nunn died Dec. 24 and her father Alcury Houstin Nunn died Jan. 17. Also, remember in prayer the families of S.T. Snow, Jimmy Glasscock and Linda Sue Gaither. S.T. died last Friday at Rosewood Assisted Living of Harmony and was the brother of the late Gene and Otis Snow and step-father of Curtis Gaither. Jimmy was the son of the late Lorene Cartner Glasscock and grandson of Vestal “Dec” and Ethel Cartner; he died Sunday of last week at home. Linda Sue Gaither died last Friday at Iredell Memorial; she was the wife of Tommy Gaither, sister of Clint VanHoy, and sister-in-law of Jonell G. Lewis and Martha Ann G. York.
