ANNUAL MEETING - SATURDAY, MAY 13, 2017
Dear Friends of Atoka Cemetery Association,
The annual Atoka Cemetery Association meeting will be held
Saturday, May 05, 2018 this year. It was decided last year by the
Association to have the annual meeting the first Saturday in May due
to the activities that usually go on in May. (ie graduations, Memorial
weekend, etc.) We will meet at the Novice United Methodist Church at
10:00 am for visiting and the business meeting will start at 11:00. At
noon we will have our usual potluck meal. The bread and drink will be
Following is the burial(s) we have had at Atoka since May of last year:
Sheilah Kincaid — DOD 9-28-17. We will miss Sheilah as
she and Gary have been wonderful supporters of the Atoka
Cemetery. May you rest in peace.
Ralph Kincaid — DOD 7-29-17. Ralph was not buried at
Atoka Cemetery but at Midway Cemetery. However, he
always liked to come to the meetings to visit.
We'll miss Ralph too.
Our new president of the Association, Larry Garvin, reported that he
has obtained some pre- emergence herbicide to spray the cemetery
for grass burrs. Hope this works! Clay Richards and his son Colt
(especially Colt) have been taking care of the cemetery maintenance
and mowing. We had fourteen people in attendance last year. I know
we are all getting older and harder to get around but we do appreciate
seeing you all when you can come.
Thank you for your past generosity in giving to the Atoka Cemetery
Association. We depend on your donations to keep the cemetery
mowed and the grave sites maintained. If you cannot attend the
meeting and would to contribute, please send your donation to Atoka
Cemetery Association, do Sue Shields, Treasurer, 699 CR 429,
