Snow Lake News
By Sue Shears

Community is saddened by death of local friends and neighbors

Hello Snow Lakers: I hope you had a good week. We are still on vacation and the warm weather is great. Hope this has been a good week for you.

Regarding the sick people on the lake I really haven’t heard from them, but I hope everyone is much better. Laurie Pierpont’s mother, Sara Pierpont died last week. She leaves her husband John, daughter Laurie of Snow Lake and a son, Ben Pierpont of Columbus, Ohio. They have been living with Laurie the past several months. J. W. Carter died last week. He leaves his wife Eunice Carter, a daughter, Connie Fitzgerald of Memphis, a sister, Nancy Funderburg of Calhoun City and a grandchild. Louie Word on Lake View Drive died last week. He leaves his wife of 62 years, Kate Word, also three sisters, Clara Word Overstreet, Elsie Word Brown, both of Snow Lake, Doris Word Shields of Clarksdale, and three brothers, Ed L. Word of Cumming, Ga., Raney Word of Hollywood, Fla. and Charles Word of Clarksdale. Our thoughts and prayers go with these families in the loss of their loved ones.

Please call Sue Wooley Graves 224-3264. If you know of anyone sick or who needs help. If you know of someone I have missed, please call me at 224-3913.
