Memories Timeline


  1. Our whole family joins you in your sorrow for this loss. We all have lots of special memories of Uncle "Bubby" and you have our sincere sympathy!

  2. We will always remember with pleasure the memories of his visits with mother and his enthusiasm when he won in Skipbo or Mexican Train. We will miss waving at him when he drove his tractor or walked in the yard. Most of all, we will miss his memory when talking with him about the past. Our blessings to you all.

  3. Steve and Faye, You will be in my thoughts and prayers as you face the days ahead. I know it is hard loosing your mom and dad so close together. May you both find strength in knowing that they are together in heaven with the Lord. Their work is done, now it is time for them to rest together.

  4. I am sorry for the loss of your father. I have many fond memories of your mother and father and our time together in 4-H. May the memory of the blessing of their lives sustain you.

  5. I work at Parkland in Bonne Terre with Dr. Neuman. We all loved Mr. Worley. He was a very sweet man. We will miss seeing him every month. I'm so sorry for your loss.

  6. I'm so very sorry to hear of Mr. Worleys passing. I thought the world of him. The last time I saw him he told me his dancing days were over……..they're not now… He and Mrs. Worley are dancing all over heaven!

  7. Worley family,your family has again suffered the loss of your parent, it is hard to know what you are feeling now, but rest assured that your parents are walking hand in hand with GOD and enjoying no pain or heartaches, with a smile on their faces not worrying about what is to be done on the farm, because GOD needs farmers there as well as he needs us there when our time is up take care of each other and look up for your parents are smiling at you all.

  8. Dear Faye, To you and all the rest of your family I send my prayers and condolences. Your Dad and Mom are together again celebrating!

  9. Uncle Bubby was my mothers favorite brother growing up, especially in the hay fields working side by side. I shall never forget the stories mom would share about the sweat and work they did to help Grandpa Worley. Also the story Uncle Theron shared in 2005 about how much he enjoyed the air-conditioned enclosure with his radio station in the hay fields and how much things had changed through the years. Faye, Richard, Glenda, Eddie, and Steve I know you will miss your dad as much I as miss mine. Take care of the farm and know that my prayers and thoughts are with you in the coming days. Jim

  10. Samantha and Shylah, I am sorry to hear about your Grandpa. Both of you girls are very strong and I know that you two have the strength to make it through this. May your Grandpa rest in peace.

  11. Mr. Worley was certainly a good father and grandfather. I remember his great dedication and all the work done for the county 4-H! He and his wife were ALWAYS there and ALWAYS doing something to help! They are both missed! Beverly

  12. Faye & family – It is always a difficult time when we lose a loved one. May you have memories of the good and be blessed for all you have done to make the best of the last days for your dad. Life will not be the same, but you can be happy, knowing your folks are now well and at peace.

  13. We would like to extend our deepest sympathy to all the Worley family. We have great memories of Theron and Erma and all their work in 4-H. Please know they touched our lives deeply. With Sympathy, Lou, James and Russell Falch

  14. Glenda, I remember so well working with not only you, but your dad and your Aunt Bernice. My sympathies to you and your entire family.

  15. Dear Worley family, You all are in our thoughts and prayers! We remember when we first moved here, and Mr. Worley was still doing hay! He would just drop by and talk! Then he was supervising from the porch! Please take care of each other and God Bless you all! Sincerely, Norman & Karin Ladd

  16. Richard & Family, So sorry for the loss of your Dad. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.
