Poplar Street, Petersburg Deadline: 5 p.m. on Monday Obituary Deadline Every Monday at 5 p.m. In Loving Memory Marilyn Bead les 1/10/1940 - 7/24/2020 We miss you so much and we love you with all our hearts. Sammy Beadles Kevin Beadles Scott and Tona Satterfield Tyler, Shanique and Aiden Dillon Larry and Sue Mann One year ago today, we lost our best friend. One year ago today, we lost the person who taught us what unconditional love was. One year ago today, we lost the person that gave meaning to our lives. One year ago today, our hearts were ripped out of our chests and torn to shreds. One year ago today, the sun quit shining and the stars no longer sparkled. One year ago today, time stood still. Minutes seemed like hours, hours like days, but it still feels like yesterday when you left. One year later, we miss the "I love you" phone calls. One year later, we still miss your voice, your laugh, your smile. One year later, all we want to do is hold you one more time and tell you how much we love you. One year later, we still can't believe you're gone. One year later, we still love you with all our hearts. One year later, we still miss you every single day. One year later, we still feel lucky to have had you in our lives. One year later, you are still the best wife, mom, sister, grandma and great-grandma. One year later, no one speaks your name. One year later, no one understands the pain and our lives will never be the same. PEACE of MIND Let our 130 years of experience aid you in your selection of a meaningful memorial.

McGlothlin, 84, passed away on July 8, 2021, in Ann Arbor, Mich. He was born on Valentine's Day, February 14, 1937, in Cynthiana, (miraculously just one day before the hospital burned down), to father, Kern McGlothlin, an Indiana Hall of Fame basketball coach from Winslow High School, and mother, Laverne McGlothlin (Egbert). He grew up mostly in and around the small towns of Winslow and Stendal. He was an only child and was very close to his family, especial- ly his aunts, Leila and Mary. He graduated from Winslow High School, then earned a business degree from the University of Evansville. He worked as an assistant hos- pital administrator at Gib- son General Hospital, raised a family with his wife, Nancy, in Fort Branch, and eventual- ly resettled in Michigan to be closer to his children. His fa- vorite job was working at Fort Knox Self Storage in Ann Ar- bor because it allowed him to do his favorite thing, meet peo- ple from all walks of life and talk to them as if they had been lifelong friends. He loved his family and had a lifetime of great memories with them. He also loved play- ing cards, going out to dinner, and sharing laughs, working his post-retirement job at Hol- iday's Restaurant in Ann Ar- bor, and passionately follow- ing his favorite sports—Big 10 basketball, the San Francisco Giants and the Detroit Tigers. He is survived by his daugh- ters, Kelly and Jennifer; his son, Chris (Kip); and their families. A Celebration of Life will be at St. Francis Church in Ann Arbor, Mich., at a later date and a memorial in his honor will be placed in Winslow. His ashes will be bur- ied alongside his father and mother in Evansville. Memo- rial contributions in his name may be made to Michigan Animal Rescue League (248 - 335 -9290), All About Animals Rescue (586 -879 -1745) or to a non-profit of the donor's choice. His favorite advice was "Always be kind" – a rule he followed every day of his life.
