Thornsberry, Jonathan-After months of enduring combat in Iraq, Marine Lance Cpl. Jonathan Thornsberry took leave in July and found God at his hometown church. The Eastern Kentucky native returned to Iraq a few weeks later. “I watched my husband turn into a different man,” said his wife, Toni Renee Little Thornsberry, at his funeral on Friday. “He was ready to go if the Lord wanted him home,” she continued during a tearful eulogy at the Little Rosa Old Regular Baptist Church in McDowell. “He was not scared to die for his country.” Jonathan Thornsberry, 22, died Oct. 25 while conducting combat operation in the Al Anbar province. He was assigned to Marine Forces Reserve's 3rd Battalion, 24th Marine Regiment, 4th Marine Division, in Johnson City, Tenn. More than 300 mourners from this small community packed the church, which sits along winding highway in the hills of Floyd County, to remember the local boy they nicknamed “Jon-Jon.”. Dozens of members of the Disabled Veterans of American and other members of the military filed into the chapel before the ceremony to salute Thornsberry. Baskets of flowers were stacked floor to ceiling, surrounding his flag-draped casket. Just down the street, a sign at McDowell Elementary read “Community Loves You Jon-Jon.” “He loved the Marines,” Thornsberry's wife told the crowd. “He was a true 'Devil Dog' and he loved to wear that uniform.” Born and raised in McDowell, Thornsberry met his future wife during his first day as a freshman at McDowell High School. The high school sweethearts married shortly after graduating four years later. “We loved each other from the moment we laid eyes on each other,” Toni Thornsberry said. The young couple had a daughter, Haylee Joe Thornsberry. Toni Thornsberry said her husband “idolized his father and brother and was a true momma's boy.” She described his passion for sports and hunting, and said she missed his sharp sense of humor as she recalled their last phone conversation. “I told him I was worried about him, and he said, 'Don't worry about me - I have plenty of women taking care of me,”' she said. She added: “He's at peace now. There's no worries. There's no pain or war.” After the funeral, several community members placed flags along the narrow country road leading up to Moore Cemetery, where Thornsberry was buried with full military honors.  Source: Appalachian News Express

Thrash, Patricia Ruth Francis ~ departed peacefully and comfortably at home, with her loving family at her bedside. She follows her beloved husband of 57 years, John Curtis Thrash, Jr., three and half years after his death. Patricia was a charismatic personality, full of life and laughter, and both the instant and enduring friend of almost everyone she ever met. She mentored countless young adults and children. However, the primary and enduring focus of her life was her family and most special was her devotion and dedication to her husband, John. Although grateful for the family and life they shared, Patricia's path these past few years since losing John can only be viewed by her surviving family members as the conclusion of a beautiful and compelling love story between two profoundly connected individuals. Born on Flag Day, June 14, 1931, Patricia was the only daughter of Elizabeth "Bessie" Caudill and Lawrence Francis, living most of her early years in her birthplace of Cincinnati , OH , with her two brothers Charles and Thomas. The family's business investments in the restaurant industry led to journeys across the United States , including a joyous and extended stay in Los Angeles , CA during Patricia's teenage years. When, as an attractive young woman in her late teens, her father moved the family to Penwell , TX , Patricia met a young petroleum engineer working nearby in drilling operations for Texaco. Patricia and John were married Dec 21, 1949 and shortly thereafter the couple began their family, first with their daughter Denise, then son John, then youngest daughter, Allison. Moving through several oilpatch communities including Midland , Odessa , Dallas and Oklahoma City, and after another period of service by John in the Navy during the Korean Conflict, the family finally settled in Houston . PPatricia and John had been happily married to one another for 57 years before John's death. They were blessed with a granddaughter, Meghan Patricia Thrash, with whom Patricia and John held a particularly close relationship. Patricia was a member, officer and director of numerous professional, civic and charitable organizations and boards. She financially supported many civic, medical and arts organizations and research efforts. Patricia briefly attended the University of Oklahoma studying Painting and Sculpture, and afterwards sold and displayed numerous works over the years, but her primary avocation was the study and research of Genealogy. She was a member of the Colonial Dames XVII Century, Colonel John Alston Chapter; National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution, Alexander Love Chapter; Texas Division National Society Magna Charta Dames and Barons; Order of Descendants of Colonial Cavaliers; Dames of Colonial Cavaliers; National Society United States Daughters of 1812; Texas Society of the United States Daughters of 1812; National Society Daughters of the American Colonists; Daughters of the American Colonists, La Salle Chapter; National Society Sons and Daughters of the Pilgrims, Texas Branch; Texas Society Continental Society Daughters of Indian Wars. She ultimately became involved with many professional and educational organizations, museums and institutions, including the Kentucky Historical Society; Knott County Historical and Genealogical Society and Library; Clayton Library, Center for Genealogical Research; and many others meaningful to her. In addition to her three children and granddaughter, Patricia is survived by her brother, Dr. Charles E. Francis and many beloved family members and dear friends. The Family wishes to thank the following extraordinary individuals for their exceptional care given to Patricia in her time of need: John Volpi, M.D., Methodist Neurological Institute, and Madeline Domask, M.D., Village Family Practice; Svanhaniel Crim, R.N. and the compassionate staff of Houston Hospice; and her loving team of private caregivers: Yolanda Montero, Gabriela Amin, Marta Cerros, Damaris Vasquez, Rebeca Armendariz, Jose Zavala and Sean Berman. The children of Patricia will be forever grateful to Juan Carlos Popoca for the selfless, round-the-clock, diligent watch he lovingly maintained over her. Services will be held Mon, April 12, 2010, at 5pm at The Sanctuary at Unity Church of Christianity, 2929 Unity Drive , Houston , TX . In lieu of flowers or similar expressions of condolence, the family requests that contributions be given, if desired, in the name of Patricia Ruth Francis Thrash to any of the following organizations: Lewy Body Dementia Association 912 Killian Hill Road SW, Lilburn, GA 30047
