No special plans have been made for the occasion. Veronica's Views By Veronica Voss These folks had long been good friends of ours. . . really Mends. Accomodating, helpful, jolly. . . and no matter if you wanted to buy anything, o r didn't, mattered not to them. You felt at home to just stop by and chat. So, it was a great shock to see their windows cov- covered, and signs saying, "Gp- ii>g out of business." In fact, I felt a bit ill about the whole thing. Mrs. Clarence Lowry, the OJ e "most always there, was formerly Ruth Hopkins, whose parents were Nola and Anna (Woodworth) Hopkins. She was horn and reared south of Belle Rive. She married Clarence, a long, tall serious looking man, with a wonderful sense of humor, and a sensitiveness I discovered, that probably few knew he possessed. He was born in Franklin County, near Need- irtore, between McLeansboro and Benton. John the other brother in this Lowry establishment, married Emma Lou Pearce, of Ewing, 111. Her parents were Jesse C. and Lena (Hughes) Pearce. This Lowry was also born near Needmore ... he too, full of wit. In 1937 they bought what was the Millersvflle store, in Beaver Cteek Township, and ran a general store there for two years. Later they ran at store in Thackeray, Dl. From there, they went to Belle Rive, in the Cleve Wilbanks Furniture store, and were there 6 years. -o» -o- -o- Buring the war, John worked in Seneca, 111. in a shipyard, to return to McLeansboro in $45, doing electrical work. In 1949, they bought the Dowd- Farlow store on the southside of the square in McLeansboro, moving to the north side in 1961. Everyone of these people would go way beyond the call of duty, if they thought they could be of help to you. Real true neighbors, even if you lived miles apart. They are a closely knit bunch, literally. . . Emma Lou's brother married her husbands sister. . . and Ruth told me that Clarence's father married her mother, which made her, her own grandma. Regardless of all this "crazy mixed up bunch" they will be missed, for many reasons. . .but most of all, will be this place of business no .longer there. . as 1 said, to stop by and have a good laugh. .. . every time. Laughter is such a rare commodity these days, one hates to !>ee such a place as this disappear from the local scene. • and I hope they will be happy and successful in whatever field of endeavor they enter. So it is Bon Voyage . . and my best to you. . . Incidentally, I got to studying about Ruth's mother marrying her father-in law, which' would make her mother her husbands stepmother, and her father-in-law her step- father-in-law, or something like that! And her own mother would be her mother-in- law .. . wouldn't she? And if jour brother married your sis- 'er-in-law, what would that make? I give up. All I know for sure is that I certainly wish this Lowry bunch weren't leaving, -o -o- -o- Elman Dietz called one day lately to say, "Veronica, it's goin' to be "root hog, or die." J hadn't heard this old saying in a long time, but it just could be.) (H'iliard & Myers) ' MR. AND MRS, VINCIL L. PIERCE Mr. and Mrs. Vincil L.
