Obituary......................

 
Mary Louise Pickett von Zedtwitz, 95, of Kerrville, Texas, formerly of Anna, passed away Thursday, Dec. 3, 2015.

She was born Jan. 7, 1920, in Anna to Mary Frances and Claude Pickett. She was the middle of three children, having an older and younger brother, both of whom preceded her in death.

She grew up in Anna, and, when approximately 12 years old, moved with her family to Flint, Michigan, where her father worked in an auto factory to support the family. She worked during her years while in school as a cashier at the local movie house and theater, graduating at age 18 from Flint Central High School.

After high school, she worked as an office receptionist and secretary, dreaming about flying as a stewardess and traveling the country. At that time, to be a stewardess, the requirement was first to be 20 years of age and, second, a nurse, as most people got ill in the turbulence of early-aviation, low-level flying. Rules were subsequently changed, dropping the nurse qualification, and, when Mary Louise turned 20, she applied and was hired to fly as a stewardess for Pennsylvania Central Airlines, a forerunner to United Airlines. Several years later, she applied for and was hired by Chicago and Southern Airlines, which later merged with Delta Airlines. It was there that she met and subsequently married in New Orleans in 1945 to John von Zedtwitz, a pilot for Chicago and Southern Airlines. She was blessed with two children and raised them there.

In 2000, after 57 years in New Orleans and after her husband's death, she relocated to Gainesville, Florida, to the Village to enjoy a quiet, peaceful life making new friends and acquaintances. After 11 years in Florida, it was time to relocate and she moved to Kerrville, Texas, to be closer to and receive care from her daughter, Roxanne. She lived at Harper House and then at the Villagio until her passing. She was a lifelong member of Gentilly Presbyterian Church in New Orleans and a respected member of the early Delta Airlines family.

She was spirited as ever and never lost the opportunity to travel. Early on, while working as a stewardess, she met and had a chance to speak with top government officials, presidents, CEOs of large corporations, movie and film stars and high-ranking officers of the military. One that she remembers well was Eddie Rickenbacker, the world-famous aviation pioneer, and another was Medal of Honor winner Sgt. Jake Lindsey and his wife, Beverly during the war. "I shall never forget my interesting life as a stewardess, meeting and greeting so many celebrities and prominent people during those years," she said.

Mary Louise loved to visit family, friends and church members. She loved to play cards, board games or go bowling and dancing. Golf was a special event in her early married life. She traveled all over the world with her husband and enjoyed life immensely. The USA, Europe, Africa and Asia were places that she extensively visited. Her favorite destination, though, was Ocho Rios, Jamaica.

Survivors include her daughter, Roxanne von Zedtwitz Case (Darrel) of Kerrville, Texas; son, Capt. John von Zedtwitz (Peggy) of Las Vegas; three grandchildren, Hans von Zedtwitz, Christina von Zedtwitz, Leigh (Ryan) and Elizabeth von Zedtwitz Smith (Mathew); and two great-grandchildren, Collin Hans Smith and Logan Pierce Leigh.

She was preceded in death by her parents; and husband, John von Zedtwitz in October, 1996.

Mary Louise was a unique individual, friend, sister, daughter, wife, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother and great-grandmother. She will be truly missed by all and returns to Anna to be placed next to her mother, father and husband in Anna City Cemetery.

Services will be at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 9, in Anna City Cemetery with the Rev. Jonathan Whitley officiating. Friends are asked to go directly to the cemetery.

Rendleman and Hileman Funeral Home in Anna is in charge of arrangements.

Online obituary.........................

Emerson Porter Kendall (1926 - 2015)

KENDALL, Emerson P. Emerson Porter "E.P." Kendall, a resident of Newnan, GA passed away on Monday, December 7, 2015 at Piedmont Newnan hospital at age 89 due to complications from pneumonia. Born in Richmond, Indiana on March 14, 1926 to Edith and Ora Melvin Kendall, Sr. E.P. was raised in the rural eastern Indiana town of Chester. He discovered a lifelong passion for aviation while on a family fishing trip as a child. He joined the Navy as soon as he was able and became a naval aviator, flying an array of aircraft and eventually served flying patrol bombers off of Kodiak Island, Alaska. After serving his country, Mr. Kendall flew crop-dusters in the Midwest. It was during this time in 1951 that while dusting in Wisconsin, he met and married Nadine "Dede" Miller. In the same year, E.P. was hired as a pilot for Delta Airlines and was based in Atlanta. E.P. & Dede lived in College Park, GA while he flew for Delta for 35 years. During his tenure he served on the negotiating committee between the carrier and the pilots union. In the late 70's he was a founding member of the Delta Pilots Assistance Committee (DPAC) and began a life-long commitment of service, helping colleagues find their way back from addiction and into healthier, more productive and spiritual lives through 12-step programs and fellowship. He was an avid fisherman throughout his life and enjoyed working outdoors. E.P. retired in 1986 and shortly thereafter he and Dede moved to Newnan. He was widowed in 2002 after 50 years of marriage. He is survived by his son Scott Kendall and wife Christine of Moreland, GA, daughter Linda Harris of Sharpsburg, GA, daughter Julie Nozaki and husband Kirk of Newnan, son Dan Kendall and wife Lesli of Los Angeles, CA. He is also survived by grandchildren Evan Kendall, Brandon Kendall, Harper Harris, Kendall Harris, Savannah Kendall Charlotte Kendall and his sister Jean Perkins of Indianapolis, IN. He was preceded in death by his oldest grandchild, Matthew Kendall. The memorial service is at 3 pm, on Sunday, January 24, 2016 at Moreland United Methodist Church in Moreland, GA with Rev. Brian Ridgedell officiating. E.P. will be laid to rest beside Dede at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Newnan.

Biography:   Dale Arthur Roach
November 27, 1939 - December 4, 2015

 
Dale A. Roach, 76, of Hot Springs Village passed peacefully on Friday evening, December 4, 2015 at a local hospital. He was born in Oklahoma City on Nov. 27, 1939 to Luther and Birdie Marie Roach.
 
 Dale is survived by his high school sweetheart and wife of 53 years Nancy Roach; sons; Dale Jr. and his wife Barb, Donald and his wife Kristy, and daughter; Dana Krawczuk and her husband Tim. He is also survived by his 6 grandsons, Dillon, Dale III., Duke and Erik Roach, Nicholas and Luke Krawczuk.
 
 Dale grew up in Oklahoma City, graduated from Classen High School and earned a B.A. from the University of Oklahoma in 1962, where he was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Air Force. He was very proud of his service and flew thousands of hours throughout the Pacific, including numerous missions in VietNam. He spent most of his time in the Air Force based in Hawaii, and had many cherished memories of his time spent there on the beautiful island and the wonderful people with whom he served.
 
 After his career in the Air Force, Dale flew for Delta Air Lines where he retired after 30 years. While at Delta, he lived in Crystal Lake, IL, Coral Springs, FL, and finally Lake Spivey, GA. He was a respected pilot and a great guy to fly with, and he made many lasting friendships during his career with Delta. Upon retirement, he moved to Lake Balboa in Hot Springs Village where he enjoyed boating, poker, investing and spending time with family and friends. He especially enjoyed presiding over Nana and Grandads' summer camp where the grandchildren spent days swimming, waterskiing, late nights’ playing cards and watching Western movies.
 
Dale loved Oklahoma Sooner football, Corvettes, living on the water, and being surrounded by his loving family. Like many men born in the first half of the last century, he valued traditional American values and self-reliance. Anyone who knew him knew that his tough exterior concealed a heart of gold. Funny, charming, and kind to a fault, Dale left a lasting impression on everyone he met.
 
 He will be missed and remembered fondly and lovingly by the many people who were lucky enough to call him a friend.
