Community saddened by local resident’s death

Our community is sad to have heard of the death of Erlene Guy Greene who died peacefully at her home.

Erlene was raised here in Schley County. She was 97 years old, and was a very lovely person and never met a stranger.

She worked at Manhattan Shirt Co. in Americus for years. She was member of Pleasant Hill Baptist Church. Erlene had one son, John T. Greene and wife Lisa, and two very special granddaughters, Meredith Greene and Hannah Greene. She also had a sister in Ellaville, Emily Mildred Guy Smith, and a number of nieces and nephews.

She was buried April 22 in the Ellaville Cemetery. Remember this family in your prayers.

A surprise guest visits friends

On April 22, Ernie Jones of Kansas City, Mo., called and came by to visit with the Young family in Ellaville. Ernie was born and raised in Ellaville.

When my parents, myself and siblings moved to  Ellaville, we lived next door Ernie and his family. Ernie was about six or seven years old. There were a  lot of children who lived on that street. I was the oldest of all of them. They were the Jones children, Snyder boys and the McMath children.

Ernie has retired from the U.S. Postal Service. He has sisters in Americus. He comes to Ellaville once a year to see family and friends.
