Jean Hagemeier passed away August 18.  She was at PG from May 2010 to May 2018… 8 years, our longest resident.  In May she went to her nephew’s, Kent and Linda Opels in Pearland (south of Houston).  Jean had health issues her whole life, but lived to be almost 95.  She loved to study the bible and always had bread in our studies.  Here’s a picture of Jean with Kent, Linda and Abigail Hoffman, when they came for a visit in June.

August has been a busy month!  Elton flew to PA for a week to be with family and at Newry.  Marybelle flew to Iowa for 2 weeks to be at Malcom (she will return Monday).  Lois fell and broke 2 ribs.  She’s recovering painfully.  John graduated from a walker to a cane, but still has to be careful walking.  Marcos and Lety Valdez decided to return to Mexico.  A few weeks later they were gone!  We’re glad that they are happy to be there, though they left many dreams behind here.  Here’s a picture of Elton with some of his family at Newry, and Marcos, Lety, Hannah and Jonathan, with Joyce, Blanca (Marco’s mother) and Kathy.  There was a going away lunch at PG… here they’re with the “Y’all Come Back” cake.

Marie and LaVina have been having meetings in Huntsville, and staying at PG some of the time.  Here they are with Gilbert.  We have a new renter for what was my parents house, Ericka.  She’s a mounted patrol at the mall so we have a horse in the horse pasture again.  She came in uniform to the going away lunch for Marcos and Lety.  Here she’s holding our grand daughter Maren Furrow.

There were 2 birthdays in August, our daughter Karin Kelleher’s (35) and my dad’s, Jack Newman (85).

We had many visitors in August, some of which we didn’t get pictures of.  Steve Peirson from WA was here for a few days, mainly to visit Fern, but we all enjoyed his visit.  Here he is with Fern, then with Fern, LaVina, and Andy and Patty Rosehill.  Also on a 4 wheeler taking Fern around the farm.

Other visitors included Nathan and Allison Potter and their girls Caroline, Kayleen, Allie, from Mountain Peak.  Ulysses and Vernell LaPrairie from Effie, shown with Marie, Gilbert and John.  Then Eugene and Laura Robertsen from LA with Gilbert and John.

Lolita Chavez and Dany from Laredo and Glenn and Shirley Spunaugle from Redbud Canyon, shown with Dominique.

Some family photos… Wayne and Dawn Overby and their family, and our 6 grandchildren.
