Our sympathy to the family of former Adrianite Warren Miller who died Tuesday, August 6th at the Minnesota Veterans Home in Luverne. Warren served his country by joining the U.S. Navy with the Sea Bees at Papua - New Guinea. He and his late wife June are the parents of Roxanne, Terry, and Dixie, eight grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren! They also lost a son Tony. Warren was an electrician and worked for Schutz Hardware and Bofenkamp Hardware in Ellsworth and then started his own Warren’s Electric in 1975. Warren had a good sense of humor and loved to fish and visit with anyone around. Pastor Kristi Franken officiated at Warren’s funeral. Military honors were provided by the American Legion Post #32. The final rites were done right in front of the Adrian Funeral Home with a 21 gun salute. It was a very moving service for Warren who was very proud to serve his country. Blessed be the memory of Warren Miller!

This writer was so happy to be at that Mass and to see and visit with all the Scheidt family. The Cox and Scheidt families go back many years when Grandpa John Cox and Grandpa Jake Scheidt farmed along side of each other for years. Joe Scheidt coached Mike Cox in basketball. In later years Rod and Mary’s daughters hoed weeds out of Al and Cindy’s soybean fields! For their graduation presents, Cindy Cox cleaned up their hoes, put a ribbon on them and they became quite a conversation piece to their non-farming friends. The girls kept the hoes in a corner of their living rooms! Jenny (Scheidt) Alexander had Ann (Cox) Hoemberg’s daughter Tammy for a baby sitter! She has also babysat Casey Scheidt’s children at times! It is a small world but a good one with many good people in it. Thank you God for good families
