Grandparents' Corner

Lexie Rain Lewis, who will be two on May 10, is the daughter of Jeremy and Jennifer Hurst Lewis of Walnut Ridge.

She has three brothers, Hunter, eight, Riley, six, and Jaxon Henry, four.

Grandparents are Linda Hurst of Hoxie and the late Silas Hurst and the late Jackie Lewis. She is the great-granddaughter of Willie Tyler of Walnut Ridge.

Oldest living
ASU graduate's
passing is notable

The death of Julia Isabel Belk Cochran of Piggott on Saturday is noteworthy. A Lawrence County native and graduate of Hoxie High School, she was the oldest living graduate of Arkansas State University at the time of her death. She was born on Nov. 17, 1906. I believe she also taught at the Hoxie School.

I recall her attending the Hoxie Alumni Reunion, and she was also a lifelong TD reader and would occasionally send us positive comments.

She must have provided much inspiration and strength to her family and friends, many of whom live here. I like the way she started her day. According to her obituary, every morning she would wake up saying, "This is the day the Lord hath made - let us rejoice and be glad in it."
