Howerton anniversary              Send a link to a friend

[JULY 5, 2003]  Patricia (Leski) and Franklin D. Howerton Sr. of Wilmington, Del., formerly of Lincoln, will observe their 50th wedding anniversary on July 20.

They plan to celebrate with an Alaskan cruise given to them by their children.

The Howertons are parents of Rosemary Falkowski and husband Edward, Francine Segner and husband Karl and Franklin D. Howerton Jr., all of Wilmington, Del. Grandchildren are Edward and Adam Falkowski and Brianna and Jillian Segner, also of Wilmington.

Franklin worked 25 years with the Wilmington (Del.) Fire Department. Patricia is a homemaker.

Elkhart sponsors
fund-raiser for mom    
Send a link to a friend

[JULY 8, 2003]  Elkhart Christian Church is sponsoring a benefit for Susan McNeil on Saturday, July 12, from 4 to 8 p.m. at Elkhart Community Park. The event includes a hog roast dinner, 50-50 drawing and a silent auction of a quarter of beef from Hanner's Farm, along with many other items.

Ms. McNeil, from Elkhart, was stricken with an unexplained and undiagnosed illness on Jan. 21. The illness, accompanied by flulike symptoms, caused septic shock to ravage her system. By the time she got to Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital, she was near death, with a blood pressure reading of 50/25.

The Lincoln hospital stabilized her and rushed her to the intensive care unit at Decatur Memorial Hospital. In order to revive her vital organs, the doctors had to give her medicine to rush the blood to them and bring up her blood pressure. Essentially, this starved her extremities (hands and feet) of blood flow, and they began to turn black. She was in the intensive care unit for eight days battling for her life. Septic shock is often fatal, but she fought hard and won.

Several months went by as Susan stayed in the hospital and watched her fingers and toes, hoping for the best. The doctors had to wait to do any surgery until her health was better and there was a clear line to show where the damage stopped. Eventually she underwent surgery to remove most of her fingers (except one thumb) and all of her toes.

 

[to top of second column in this article]

After three months in the hospital, she's finally home now but has missed work since January. She is employed by Contech Construction Products in Springfield as an order correspondent, typing orders in on a computer. She is hoping to return to work soon.

She has had to learn how to do everything over again, from dressing to eating to typing, so she can return to work. She is a single mother with two teenage kids, a car payment, mortgage and medical bills beyond belief.

She moved to Elkhart just two years ago, and the town has opened its arms to her and her family. It's as if the town is one big family that is there for each other in times of need. Susan has said she couldn't have moved to a better community than Elkhart. She would like to thank everyone and especially the families from Elkhart Christian Church.

For the benefit dinner on Saturday, tickets are $5 for adults and $2 for kids. Tickets for both the dinner and drawing can be purchased at the Talk of The Town in Elkhart or from Sherry Hall, (217) 947-2352.

Family and Friends in the Armed Forces

sponsored by American Legion Post 263

It is a time like no other. Since Sept. 11, 2001, we are a changed nation. Individually, our daily sensitivity toward whom and what we have in our lives has been heightened. We are more conscious and appreciative, first about those we love and see every day. Next, we have a newfound appreciation for those who risk their lives every day as rescue workers and protectors of life and property in our communities. We also now think more about our military men and women who are committed to serve and protect our country. Many are away engaged in battle, some are in waiting to go, all are ready to lay their lives on the line in defense of our freedom.

Friends and relatives serving in the armed forces are listed here so we might all hold them in our thoughts, prayers and well wishes. If you know of other friends and relatives serving (they need not be from Logan County), please send the information to ldneditor@lincolndailynews.com. Along with the name, you are invited to include the branch of service, current location of service, postal address, e-mail address and relationship to the person providing the information (optional).
