ANNUAL MEETING - SATURDAY, MAY 21, 2016
Dear Friends of Atoka Cemetery Association,
The annual Atoka Cemetery Association meeting will be held Saturday,
May 21, 2016 this year. 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 provided.
Following is the burial(s) we have had at Atoka since May of last year:
Opal Inez Archer [Opal Inez BATES CHITWOOD ARCHER] our
dear friend and supporter of Atoka. I don’t think she ever failed to
attend a meeting of the association. Inez passed away October 17th
at the age of 92. She was born in Runnels County to James Roy and
Myrtle (DePrang) Bates. She had lived most of her life in Novice and
was a member of the Novice Baptist Church. We will miss her friendly
Dorothy Rackley [Dorothy June-Hope SMITH CLEVENGER
RACKLEY] - missed putting Dorothy in my letter last year as she
passed away on April 5, 2015. She was born May 18 1932 in Kilgore,
Tx to Ivy and Irene (Lewis) Smith. She moved to Novice in 1954 with
her husband Dawl.
Thank you for your past generosity in giving to the Atoka Cemetery
Association. We depend on your donations to keep th
e 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, c/o Sue Shields, Treasurer, 699 CR

We will be looking for a new groundskeeper after May as Michelle
Williams will be retiring from that job. If you know of anyone let me or
James Richards know.
