Carole Sue Atkinson, 69, Archie, MO, died Wednesday, May 23, 2007 at her home after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. Funeral services were held Friday, May 25 at the First Baptist Church in Archie, officiated by Dr. Jeff Paul.
“They were there when I needed them,” said Anna Brown. “I thought I could say thank you and help them in this way.”
The ‘they’ who helped the Brown family is the Adrian Volunteer Fire Department. They quickly responded to the Brown property, west of Passaic, when a pasture caught fire. The fire was extinguished just before it would have reached a large propane tank and possibly buildings on the property.
A pre-construction meeting for Adrian’s Vision 2007 Project was held on Wednesday, May 30 at 10 a.m. Representatives from MoDOT, Hilty Quarries, Olsson Associates, James Drew Corporation, Missouri and Northern Arkansas Railroad, Kaysinger Basin RPC, Vision 2007 and the Adrian City Council were present. Cindy Kendrick, Adrian’s Mayor, and Leonard Harrison, City Administrator, were also present.
