Once again we are sending community sympathies to a passed Gadsby resident. Lola (Derr) Stewart passed away this past week at the age of 91 years. Lola was born and raised south of Gadsby, taking her schooling at Big Knife school and Little Knife schools south of Gadsby. She married and they raised their family in Erskine. Sympathies to her family, to her sisters Edna, Beatrice, Laura, Clara and their families as well as the families of the late Gene and Benny Derr and sister Kathleen and brother Les.
