Area residents were sorry to learn of the death of W.F. “Bill” Cunningham, age 90, formerly of Keith and later a resident of Crosby. He passed away Monday, Sept. 23, after being ill for several years. He was a good friend and neighbor to many in the Keith community as was his wife Ruth who survives him.
Services are pending as one of their daughters is out of the country. Remember his wife Ruth and their daughters and other family members in your prayers.
When this column goes to press, the Keith dump site will officially be closed. The last day was Saturday, Sept.
28. I will now have to drive to the dump site in Iola to run that dump site. The Iola site will be open Monday and Thursday 7 a.m. till 3:30 p.m., and Saturday 7 a.m. till 11 a.m. It will certainly be a big change from walking to work to having to drive there but all good things come to an end. Hope to see you there.
