Too many losses lately

 

January 9, 2019



Our hearts are so heavy with sadness in our peaceful little community because of the sad losses we’ve had these last few weeks. Our deepest condolences to Trino and Rosa Murillo on the tragic loss of their son, Angel. Angel was much loved here in Glenwood, known for his amazing artistic talent and his kind and gentle nature. When still in school, he was a long-time member of the Mt. Adams Community 4-H beef club and finished his final 4-H year by winning the grand champion steer at the county fair. Even though still quite young, Angel was making a name for himself as a saddle maker and artist in Pendleton and was also well-loved in that community. Please keep the Murillo family in your hearts and prayers. A service for Angel will be held on Sunday, Jan. 13, at 10 a.m. in the Columbia High School gym in White Salmon.

Our sadness was compounded by the tragic vehicle accident last week that took the lives of Tillie Williams and her son Lonnie. Tillie was a long-time Glenwood resident who, with her late husband Rich, raised their three sons here. She was a friend to many and a long-time member of the Glenwood Women’s Club. Lonnie was known for his artistry in carving headstones and other art mediums and loved hunting with his hounds. This sad double loss has rocked our community and we extend our deepest condolences to Brian and Scott Williams and their families. A memorial service for Tillie and Lonnie was held at the Glenwood School on Monday, Jan. 7.

A memorial service for Bobbie Burns will be held at the Glenwood school on Jan. 19 at 1 p.m. A dinner prepared by the Glenwood Homemakers will follow the service. Come help the Burns family celebrate Bobbie’s life on that day.

How about some upbeat news? The Glenwood Middle School basketball teams will play here against Trout Lake beginning at 5 p.m. To make the evening even more entertaining, the peewee basketball players will play a game during half time of the girls’ game. It’s bound to be a really fun evening.

The Klickwood teams will have games here in Glenwood against Trout Lake on Friday, Jan. 11, starting at 6 p.m. The Homecoming coronation will take place at half time of the boys’ game. Klickwood travels to Sunnyside on Saturday the 12th for games starting at 3 p.m.

The church youth group is hosting a pancake feed fundraiser on Jan. 26 from 8:00 to 10 a.m. at the church. All money raised will help send kids to Winter Camp over Presidents’ Day weekend. Here’s a great chance to support the kids and get a delicious breakfast, too.

The Glenwood High School class of 2019 recently distributed the community calendars they created and sold as a fundraiser. The class did a great job. The photos are beautiful, and it’s fun to look at the date and see who is celebrating a birthday or anniversary on that day. There are a few left, and if anyone would like to purchase one, the cost is $15. You can contact Toni at the school office.
