Happenings in Henrytown

Josh Smith entertained Schultz family Sunday for brunch at Wings in Dorchester, Iowa in honor of his mom, Theresa Newgard’s birthday. Grandpa Gary and Gramma Pat were also guests of the family celebration. Diane Schultz (Mrs. Norman), Pleasant Grove, had knee surgery shortly before Thanksgiving and is still recuperating.

While sitting in a back pew on Saturday, attending a funeral, old Win E.’s eyes spotted the most clever, humorous site she had ever laid eyes on. Near the front of the church sat an elderly gentleman, with a narrow rim of white hair on his head, that was enhanced by two eyeballs staring at you from the bald globe above the rim of hair. It’s good to know there are people in this world who have a sense of humor and try (want) to keep everyone smiling.

Pat Schultz accomplished Win Eiken to the Whalan Lutheran Church on Saturday afternoon to attend the funeral of Valerie Olson. The friends and family filling the church from balcony to basement attested as to how everyone loved Valerie. The chaplains from the hospice gave a lovely sermon telling of Val’s love and generosity to everyone.

As Win E. sat in the church filled with all the Whalanites, she wished to announce to one and all to remember the “Whalan Good Ol’ Days” celebrated each year on the first Saturday of August. Valerie was a member of that committee for several years and was on the “Good Ol’ Days” cookbook committee as well. She has many good old recipes in the cookbooks she helped assemble and get printed for “Whalan Good Ol’ Days”.

After lunch, walking to the cat to leave for home, Saturday, Pat and Win met up with Harriet Dollar for a short visit and were told her sister, Bonnie Fossum, had recently had the misfortune to fall and break her ankle. Hopefully her recovery won’t be too long... she’ll be missed at the Kwik Trip in Harmony.
