Plymouth Area News for the week of March 11th, 2019, by Joyce Steiner


Mardelle Holst passed away on March 3rd.  Her visitation was Thursday and the  funeral was Friday at Living Faith United Methodist Church in Bowen with Pastor Sheri Renner officiating.  She was a lovely lady and who leaves a large family and a lot of friends. The church members  served a meal after her funeral. She will be missed.

Donnie Powell of Plymouth passed away on March 7th.  He had been ill for some time.  He leaves a sister Carolyn Frakes and a brother Ed Powell as well as his wife and other family.  There have been some really nice photos of him posted on the Plymouth facebook page.  Our sympathy to his family and friends.

Hazen Tuck and his wife, Carol, stopped by the antique store earlier last week to pick up a sign which I had saved from the Community Center.  It was an early metal sign with “ Dr. Tuck” painted on both sides.  Hazen has a son who is a doctor so I was very happy to see the sign go back to the family where it actually belonged.  He also has a son who is a lawyer but none of his relatives left a lawyer sign in Plymouth!

On Wednesday evening a group of ten of us from Living Faith attended the play “The Church Basement Ladies in Rise Up O’Men”.  It was very nice to be with a group from the church.  We had dinner in Carthage before the play.  Thanks to Donna Harrison for organizing the event for us.  So glad to see that the Legacy Theater in Carthage has a wide variety of offerings for the area.  Also noted that Marilyn Bricker was there.  She is from the Bushnell area and said that she came over with a group of eleven.

Thursday, Pat Phelps was to begin a new Bible study at my home beginning at 9:30 am.  As it was already snowing in Quincy by that time, and as the storm was headed our way, we called off the study.  We will try again this week-same time, same place.

Fixed fruit for the dinner for Mardelle Holst and attended her visitation on Thursday evening.

Friday, Sullivan Auction at Hamilton had an antique auction.  Many will remember when Gregory’s Antiques in Kahoka, Mo sold out.  It was a two week auction.  This auction was for the same family.  There were some really nice things at the auction.  Got a small load for the antique store.  Did buy a large telescope which is not an antique, but I hope someone will be interested in it.  I already have a couple or I would keep it.  Anyway tried to talk Dan Sullivan into having more antique auctions but as one of their auction rooms has been turned into office space, I don’t think this is going to happen.  Wish it would!!

Saturday we had rain and wind.  Kind of a yukky day but had several people in the antique store anyway.  Thank You.

On Sunday was liturgist at our church.  Stopped by Rusty Red’s Farm Table for lunch with a group from church.  Enjoyed their Sunday lunch special.

A neighbor had a pipe burst in her home.  This damaged both the home and the furnishings.  Went out Sunday afternoon to try to help put a damage value on some of her antiques for the insurance company.

Looks like spring might actually get here this week.  There are no temperatures below zero predicted for a whole week!

A reminder that Plymouth Women’s Circle is hosting a chicken and noodle dinner this Saturday, March 16th from 4:30-7 pm at the PCCC.  Please come and enjoy some great food and support this small group of ladies who valiantly keep up the former Plymouth Methodist Church for the use of the whole community.

Have a great week.  Scatter Kindness.
