Mrs. Charlyne Bodner underwent jaw surgery on Tuesday of last week. She has recovered well except she still has swelling in her mouth and jaw area.
On the night of Jan. 29, Kings Mountain was one of the places that suffered damage from the tornado-like winds. One was the much-regretted loss of the huge, perfectly-shaped pine in the backyard of Julia Ann Peterson. Although it did not fall on her house, for which all were thankful, she feels much regret over the loss of her beautiful tree.
A very belated item: In November, Mrs. Carlton (Flora) Stull got a bad fall and later developed pneumonia. She ended up with an eight-week stay in the Danville hospital. She has been home four weeks now and is on a walker. She stays in her house except for her trips to the doctor.
In the obituaries recently, notice was given of Effie Pulliam Jones, who grew up in Kings Mountain and attended the old Kings Mountain School here. One thing was not mentioned about Mrs. Jones. She had a twin sister whose name was Mrs. Bessie Pulliam Lay. She lived in this area for many years until she and her husband Joe moved to Florida. He died, and Bessie is now in a rest home in Tampa. Effie lived mostly in Michigan and at the end time of her death, she was living there with her daughter. The twins have two other living sisters, Ada Snow of Kings Mountain and Margie Jones of Ohio.
