Pedee news: Nola Womer

Aaron Burbank and Dan Hayes assisted Pastor Lonnie Burbank at the May 27 morning worship service at Pedee Evangelical Memorial Church.

The red rose bouquet on the organ, pink rose bouquet on the piano, and larger bouquet of pink roses in the foyer were from Nila Shellenbarger's yard.

The pastor reminded all that the congregational meeting and election of officers will follow the June 10 worship service.

Stacey Wiedenmann announced that there are cards on a table in the foyer listing supplies needed for daily Vacation Bible School, June 18-22 at the church. Those who would like to help may provide any of the items listed on the cards.

Stacey also introduced her grandfather, Arnold Wiedenmann, who was visiting from Mesa, Ariz.

In keeping with the Memorial Day theme, the opening hymn was "My Country 'Tis of Thee" and Pam Burbank's piano offertory was "America the Beautiful."

The pastor's message was from Judges 4:1-9: "The Right Woman for the Job."


After the service, Nila Shellenbarger divided the church foyer bouquet into bouquets and took them to Fir Crest Cemetery in Monmouth. One was placed on the grave of C.B. "Burt" Brooks, longtime Pedee-area resident, and the other was for Frank and Ethel Moreland - the couple Nila stayed with while she attended Oregon College of Education.


Spencer and Jill Jones, with Jeffrey, Ryan and Alyssa and Jill's sister Brenda Ronco, all visited Paul and Betty Ronco on May 27. Flowers were taken to the Womer Cemetery, and Brenda took flowers to the Ronco graves at the Montgomery Cemetery.


Family and neighbors helped Paul Kovash celebrate his May 29 birthday a day early. Among those enjoying an evening birthday dinner were Paul's daughters and their families, and Pedee Creek neighbors, Sam and Judy Guida.
