Harriman Happenings: May 7

-A A +A
By Louise Warmley

Alma Kilgo Moore recently passed away in Centinela Medical Center in Inglewood, Calif.

Service was held for her at Panuel Missionary Baptist Church, where she was a faithful member.

Alma was a resident of Harriman, so they had a service for her here at Evans Mortuary on Tuesday, May 1. The Roane County Community Chorus provided the music, and Margie Moore sang a solo. The Rev. James Guthrie gave the eulogy.

She leaves to cherish her memory one daughter, Monica (Steven) Arceneaux and one son, Ricky Moore of Los Angeles; six grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; five sisters; and one brother. Lots of other relatives and friends.

Alma will be missed by many family and friends.

Our deepest sympathy is extended to the family of Hubert Buttram. Hubert recently passed away in Chattanooga. He served in the Air Force. His last place of work was Duport.

He is the son of the late Hubert Buttram, who was a resident of Harriman. He’s survived by three daughters, one brother and 18 grandchildren.

Arvine and Pat Buttram are his cousins. They attended his service in Chattanooga.

Congratulations to Richard Hickey and Shirley Henish, who were the highest bowlers for the month of March. Their score was 1,312.

If you are a senior come to Tri-Cities Lanes and join others on Friday at 1 p.m.

Charles and Andra Warmley and Andra’s Aunt Mary were weekend guests in my home last week.

They live in Atlanta. They worshiped with me Sunday at St. Mary’s Baptist Church.

There’s a song title, ‘Have Your Way Lord.’ The Lord had His way with the youth choirs and Margie Moore and Angie Childress who sang in the Song Fest at St. Mary’s Baptist Church Sunday. Little Leaf Baptist Church Youth, First Baptist Church Youth Choir and Believers Voice of Deliverance Church Youth Choir — all of them sang with the anointing. This was a great service.

A tent revival was held five days on the grounds of Jamieson Development Center.

Great preaching was done by Pastor Jesse L. Williams, Pastor Paul Taylor, Pastor Alvin Douglass, Pastor Willie Gallaher and Pastor Denard. Revivals are to revive Christians and lead the unsaved to Christ. These were great services and well attended.

Our deepest sympathy is extended to the family of Blanch Davis, who recently passed away. Blanch was a beautiful person and a lover of people.

She was a faithful member of Trenton St. Baptist Church and a true friend of mine. She was the mother of three sons. She will be missed.

We extend sympathy to Albert Hawkins and family in the recent passing of his daughter, Mechell Hawkins. Arrangements were incomplete at the time of this writing.

Happy birthday to my nephew, Spencer Anderson, May 5; and Alice Chatman, May 1. May both of you be blessed with many more birthdays.
