Wesley Chapel United Methodist Church’s breakfast and bake sale was a big success and the proceeds were given as a love gift to a church member  who had been in an accident. The next breakfast will be on Oct. 21. We hope you will come to Pino and enjoy a good country breakfast.

The Rev. Randy Pardue is leading a Bible study Wednesday nights for members of Wesley Chapel and Union United Methodist churche. A large group is involved in that study and they would be happy to have guests. Check the Wesley Chapel United Methodist Church web site for more information.  The group meets one week at Wesley Chapel and the next week at Union.

The Betty/Roland West family is saddened by the death of Mindy Renay Spillman of Yadkinville.  Mindy is the ex-wife of Henry West, but has remained Henry’s friend and a friend of his family.  Mindy has been involved in all West Family activities through the years.

Mindy was born on Aug. 21, 1958, and died on Friday, Sept. 22, 2023, at SECU Hospice Care Center of Yadkin.  Mindy, who just celebrated her 65th birthday, was the daughter of Henry Ray and Betty Jean McEwen Spillman.

Mindy earned her associate degree in criminal justice from Surry Community College and her bachelor’s degree in criminal justice and human resources from Gardner Webb University. She was president of the Law Enforcement Organization at Surry Community College.  Mindy was a former member of Bread of Life Baptist Church where she was active, and had more recently been attending Northwood Baptist Church in Yadkinville.

Mindy was preceded in death by her parents, her sister, Commie Spillman Doss, her brother, David Dean Spillman, and her close friend Pat Newsom.

She is survived by: her children, Adam Boose of Winston-Salem, and twins, Alexander Spillman and Autumn Spillman Alvarez, and her husband, Peter, all of Yadkinville; and her grandchildren, Landon and Noah Boose and Gideon Alvarez, who is due to arrive in November.  Mindy is also survived by her brother, Steve Spillman and his wife, Laurie; her sisters, Debbie Booth and her husband, Mike, and Ann Curry and her husband, Donald; and a close friend, Frank Newsom.

Mindy’s family received friends at Gentry Funeral Home in Yadkinville on Saturday night, Sept. 30, and her funeral services were held at the funeral home on Sunday afternoon, Oct. 1, led by Rev. Andy McDaniel and Rev. Tim Webb. Mindy was buried at Courtney Baptist Church.
