From Beulah Talkington

By Staff | Mar 29, 2017

Dear Editor,

Thank you for the positive article about Bill Cross. It was so interesting. It is nice to see good news for a change.

You are right, we have many great citizens with many great stories. Keep them coming.

I didn’t know Bill Cross well, but I knew his wonderful daughters and wife from our 4-H work together.

Betty was not a talker, she was a doer. One year when I was chairman of the 4-H food stand at Town & Country Days, Betty volunteered to bring a pie to the food stand.

That morning, she did her farm chores, picked blackberries, cleaned them, made 2 pies, baked them, came about 15 miles, doubled her pie committment and was there by 11 a.m.

That was the example she set on a regular basis. She was a great woman.
