He supported and attended all of the 30+ reunions and organized two

AUNT JEAN: Just
a few days before the October Newsletter was published our beloved Aunt
Jean (Jean Farrar Hite) passed away. For 35 years she had
joyfully made a yearly trip from Texas to Arkansas to be able to attend
our family reunions. For the past year or so she had enjoyed her
new home in Hardy, Arkansas
especially participating in the Hardy Senior Citizen Center. She
recently donated one of her beautiful quilts to the Center to be
raffled off with all donations
to the Senior Center to help in their mission. If you would like
a chance to win this quilt you can make a donation. It is $5.00
per entry. In lieu of flowers
you can also make a monetary donation, amount of your choice, to the
Center: Hardy Senior Citizen Center, 304 Johnson Lane, Hardy,
AR 72542. 870-856-2175.
We will all miss our Aunt Jean very much.
