The quilt ministry of Society Baptist will meet at 9 a.m. Wednesday, April 2.  The group invites others interested in quilting.

The women’s Bible study titled “Seamless” meets at 7 p.m. today (Thursday) at Society Baptist.

Upcoming community events: Harmony High Alumni Association dinner meeting Saturday, May 13; and “Family Day Picnic” at Clarksbury Methodist in May.

Our community extends its deepest sympathy to the family of Ailene Lagle Potts, who died last Friday at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center after a brief hospitalization with respiratory problems.

The younger of two children, she was born in Davie County in 1938 to the late Ernest and Mary Belle Jones Lagle of Davie.

Ailene was reared on Davie Academy Road near US 64 West and faithfully attended Jericho Church of Christ with her family.  She attended Cool Spring High, where she was class historian in 1952. In the 1950s the Lagles moved to Mocksville, and Ailene graduated from Mocksville High School in 1956.

In February 1958, Ailene married Billy Potts of the Cornatzer community at Main Street Church of Christ;  the couple initially lived on Markland Road and reared children Reggie and Anita.  The family attended Cornatzer Baptist.  Later as the couple became “empty nesters,” they made their home on Wilkesboro Street in Mocksville.

Ailene enjoyed a career working as a cardiologist office assistant. Gentle and caring, she was a caregiver for her brother and father after her mother’s death. She enjoyed having dinner with friends and spending time with family.

A graveside service celebrating her life was held Monday afternoon in the Cornatzer Baptist Cemetery; she was laid to rest beside Billy, who died December 2017.      

Alice Wall remains in rehab at Davie Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.  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 support upon the family of Ailene as they deeply miss her in life.

Remember in prayer Johnny and Cheryl Benfield Taylor; Johnny’s mother Dorothy “Dot” Taylor died Saturday, April 8, and a graveside service was held last Thursday afternoon at New Hope Baptist Church Cemetery.
