        Harry Don Ivey, 80, passed away April 12, 2004, at Fayetteville, Ark.  He was born Sept. 9, 1923, in the Oakland-Zion community to Golden Christian and Cora Mae Watson Ivey.

        Harry grew up on the family farm in the Oakland-Zion community and attended school at the Zion school.  He lived his entire life on the land passed down from his grandfather.  It had been in the family since the 1870s.  The original tract of land for the Oakland Cemetery was donated by Harry's grandfather.  Harry was a member of the Oakland Baptist Church and had been a board member of the Oakland Cemetery for many years.

        Harry is survived by his wife, Jane Kinkade Ivey, to whom he was married Dec. 19, 1947; two sons and daughters-in-law and six grandchildren, Van Kinkade and Becky Powers Ivey and children Adam, Allison and Alex of Fayetteville and Don Christian and Gretchen Gray Ivey and children, Simon, Dustin and Madi of Newtown, Pa.  He was preceded in death by his parents, Golden and Cora Ivey and one brother, Clinton Eugene Ivey.

        Harry was a longtime farmer.  He built a herd of high-quality Black Angus cattle and sold breeding stock for many years.  He had a broad knowledge of cattle, and he was justifiably proud of the quality of his herd and the stock he offered for sale.  Cattlemen who owned breeding stock from Harry's herd advertised the fact as a mark of quality.  Harry also served on the Washington County Fair board for a number of years.  In later years he operated a land-clearing, and earth-moving business.

        Harry's many friends will remember him as a man who was meticulous in caring for his land, equipment and machinery.  They will also recall what a sociable man he was and how he loved to laugh.  He will be remembered as a man of honor whose word was his bond and whose judgments were respected by everyone who knew him.  Harry Ivey was a man who loved deeply his life, his family and his land.

        Graveside services will be at 2 p.m. today, April 14 at Oakland Cemetery with the Rev. Charlie Foster officiating.  Visitation will be one hour prior to service time today at the cemetery.

        Honorary pallbearers will be Kenneth Ivey, Guy Terry, Hill Simmons, George Anderson, Curt Allen, Richard Swaffar, G.C. Watson and Roger Wade.

        In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Oakland Cemetery, c/o Carl Kinsey, 4333 Bridgewater, Fayetteville, Ark., 72703.

Submitter's Note:  Her funeral brochure included this poem:

                Welcome Home

When I am gone, release me, let me go,

I have so many things to see and do.

You mustn't tie yourself to me with tears.

Be happy that we had so many years.

I gave you my love, you can only guess

how much you gave me in happiness.

I thank you for the love you each have shown,

but now it is time that I traveled on alone.

So grieve awhile for me, if grieve you must,

then let your grief be comforted by trust.

It's only for a time that we must part,

so bless the memories within your heart.

I won't be far away, for life goes on,

so if you need me, call and I will come.

Though you can't see or touch me, I'll be near,

and if you listen with your heart you'll hear,

all of my love around you soft and clear.

Submitter's Note:  A smaller card:

IN LOVING MEMORY OF RUBY JEAN MILLER

January 19,1927 - June 17, 2004

God, grant me the serenity

to accept the things I cannot change.

courage to change all things I can,

and wisdom to know the difference.

LEXINGTON - Dalton L. Stewart, 66, of Ohio died Thursday, September 2, 2004. He died at his home after a ten-month battle with pancreatic cancer. He was born Jan. 31, 1938 in Richland County to Kenneth H. and Velma M. Kemp Stewart, and was graduated from Johnsville High School in 1956. He was a member of Williamsport United Methodist Church, where he had served the congregation as trustee, and had played on the church softball team 30 years. Blessed with a strong work ethic, Dalton never wasted anything - water, electicity, and especially his time. He was at his best when he was busy; not afraid of leisure time, he just didn't choose it. Upon arriving at any of his children's homes he'd ask "So, what do you want done?" Dalton valued the land, evident in his passion for farming, gardening and landscaping, and one of his favorite pastimes was cutting wood. Dalton's dry sense of humor, combined with his affable personality produced, "one-liners" that transferred his infectious grin to those around him. He was committed to whatever he undertook, never leaving a project undone. Described as honest, fair and an encourager, he was extremely proud of his children and grand- children. Though he collected John Deer memorabilia, his one true hobby was his grandchildren.

He is survived by his wife, Mary Jane Ewers Stewart, whom he married June 28, 1957; their children and spouses, The Rev. David L. and Judy Stewart of Kennesaw, Georgia; Gary A. and Nancy Stewart of Mount Gilead; Rebecca L and Rick Crowl of Mansfield and Robert J. and Robin Stewart of Centerville; eight grandchildren, Hannali and Hope Stewart, Matthias and Merrick Stewart and Andy, Aaron, Adam and Austin Crowl; a brother, Arvin G. Stewart of Mansfield; a niece and two nephews; and a brother-in-law and sister-in­law, James and Hester Ewers of Mount Gilead.
