Hi Found the site thanks to Joan Ellison Simmons. I live in Anniston. A little about my life since I left Bynum. I have five children, four grands and three great grands. I married Jimmy Reid in 1956, had two children, Melanie and Gene. We divorced and I married a man from Lincoln, Bob Ellen, and was married for 36 wonderful years. We had two children Wanda and Bobby and Bob had a son Robert. Bob died suddenly at 62 while we were working in Ames, Iowa. I have since married a wonderful man Leamon Adams, from Clay County.
My Dad passed away in the early 70's and my Mom in 79. My brothers R.J and Hugo have both passed away. Billie lives in Maryland, and was Director of Photography at the White House for many years. He has lekuminia but is doing well. My sister Martha Sims lives on Beck road.
I see Joan and Janet Ellison, Jean Ann Kilgore Nelson, Jimmy Kilgore, Johnnie Sue Brady, Ann Finley, Buddy Howell (not often), Evelyn Owens, Billy Lipham and probably a lot more I can't think of right now.
