L. W. Roberts, Welcome Page

This page is just under construction as of 15-December-2002.

This page is dedicated to Loyce Palmer (Mrs. Joe Palmer). It is through her memories as a writer for the Petty News, and my parent's good friend (and my babysitter, on many an occasion) that I am afforded the memories of my Parents and those for whom they cared; all were "Pettyites". Thank you Loyce, every time I work on these pages, my Parents come to visit!

My parents had many funny stories about working at J. C. Petty, here are some of the names that I remember (in no special order) being mentioning with great fondness:
  • Bill and Francis Holloway - my parents' friends until their deaths (near Austin, Texas - the family home), even though the Holloways left "the company" years before my Dad went on to other endeavors.
  • Joe and Loyce Palmer - I still talk to Lois on the phone frequently (sadly, the pages of Joe's Book of Life closed on 09-December-2002).
  • Pete and Dorothy Shanack (sp) - I have no idea where they are, or if they are still living.
  • Ed and Zola Bartel - The last entry in my Dad's address book (by my Mom) indicates they were living in San Antonio, Texas, and are deceased.
  • T. P. and Dorothy McGee - both deceased.
  • Weldon and Elizabeth Crawford - still "at home" in San Antonio.
  • Maurice and Margaret Pilcher - Snyder, Texas last known whereabouts.
  • Jimmy and Martha Hazelrigg - She still resides in Louisiana.
