Community is saddened by local resident’s death

The community is sad to have heard of the death of Lozia Dee (Guy) Wall. Most everyone called her Lozia Dee.

Lozia Dee was 91 years old and a very sweet person to everyone. She was born here in Schley County.

She was the daughter of the late John Thomas Guy and Pearl Cromer Guy and the wife of the late Wesley Wall of Schley County.

Lozia Dee and her late husband raised two daughters here in Schley County, Gaynelle (Wall) Williams and her husband Charles of Oglethorpe, and Dycie (Wall) Pope of Cataula, and she has two sisters, Erlene (Guy) Greene and Emily Mildred (Guy) Smith both of Ellaville, and a number of grandchildren and nieces and nephews.

Lozia Dee will be missed in our community and what special memories she has left us all to remember her by. Special thoughts and prayers go out to this family.
