So sorry for your loss - we just learned of sweet Mrs. Adams passing when the birthday card we sent was returned. We met her through our church about 10 years ago and have fond memories of visits with her, running errands and eating burgers at Sonic. She will be missed.

I was so sorry to hear about Aunt Ione. I have so many childhood memories of her and Uncle Poin. They were quite a pair!! I don't think I ever, ever saw Aunt Ione without her hair fixed just like it is in this picture... I often wondered how she kept it so perfect! She always had a smile and a straight-forward opinion for whoever she came across. My mother admired her a lot. Maybe now they are all playing Pinochle in heaven!! Sorry I couldn't come to the service.

I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Ione at the Country Barn for years. She was like a mother figure. She was a good waitress, very sweet, and stood up for what she thought. She will be missed.
