She was a loving mother to her four sons and her granddaughter, Tiffany, whom she raised as her own child.

 

To know Wanda was to love her. She was known for her deep concern for those around her, strong work ethic, and radiant smile. She was an incredible cook, and her family looked forward to her delicious holiday spreads all year. She was a faithful member of Jamestown Christian Church.

Beverly Ann Myers, 72, Columbia, KY


Beverly Ann Myers, 72, of Columbia, KY passed away Sunday, August 27, 2023 at her residence with her family by her side. She was born in Columbia, KY on January 18, 1951 to the late Robert Leland and Virginia “Jenny” Ferguson Grant.
 

She was a member of the Tabernacle Christian Church

 

Beverly Myers was the epitome of a matriarch. Her zest for life, love for Jesus and her family was unwavering and unmatched. She could fix any problem with a homecooked meal or an oatmeal square and could cure any heartache with her infectious smile and distinct laugh. She was known to leave a lipstick stain trail, have popsicles on hand, and loved to read a good bedtime story. She never missed a ballgame, recital, competition, or school function. There is so much to say, it would take a lifetime to tell all the things Mama Beverly was to so many. You go through life and hear people talk about “a mother’s love” or “a mother’s touch,” and she embodied those things with every ounce of her being and then some. She absolutely lived for her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren and her spirit will live on for generations to come because of the values she single-handedly instilled in them day in and day out.

Jeffrey Lynn "Jeff" Feese, 56, Columbia, KY


Jeffrey Lynn “Jeff” Feese, 56, of Columbia, KY was called home on Sunday, August 13, 2023. He was born in Adair County, KY on February 27, 1967 to Willie Matt Feese Jr. and Donna Ellis Feese of Columbia, KY who survives.


Jeff was a member of the Tabernacle Christian Church in Adair County.

 

If you asked a hundred people who Jeff Feese was, they would all give you a different story. A hunter, a fisherman, an outdoorsman, the BBQ man, hard-headed, the life of the party, the black sheep, a papa, a husband, a dad, a son, a friend, and so much more. He was a fairly simple man who loved a good tune (turned up a little too loud), loved to tell a story that sounded way too crazy to ever possibly be true, and was uniquely himself no matter where he was. 

 

Jeff was a fighter to the very end, and his family is so proud of how he finished his race here on earth.
