2B The Mountain Messenger, Thursday, July 5, 1990 Reunion Held Mabel Kyer ana I:::mlly roster By April Hefner Greenbrier State Forest at Harrs Run was the scene of a doubie cele- bration June 17 -- the annual reun- ion of the family of Calvin and Carrie Dean McDermott and the birthd#y party of the family's matriarch, Mabel McDermott Kyer. Mrs Kyer was born in Neola in 1898 and has lived in the area for most of her life. The next-to-young- est child in a family of seven, she is the only survivor of one brother, Lawrence McDermott, and five sis- ters, Mrs Evie Scott, Mrs Biddle Kyer, Mrs Pearl Hefner, Mrs Nora Hefner and Mrs Nellie Rowan. Mrs Kyer attended business school in Huntington before marry- ing her husband of over forty years, Hutton Kyer, in 1919. Although she was never formally employed, she used her business school training by doing the book- keeping for the family businesses, a taxi cab service and an Exxon filling station. Mrs Kyer is the mother of three daughters, Isadore and jenny Lee who are deceased, and June Houseman, who lives in Roanoke with her husband, French. She is the grandmother of five and has four great-grandchildren. In addition to being a charter member of White Sulphur Springs Chapter #148 of the Order of the Eastern Star, Mrs Kyer is also an elder in the First Presbyterian Church where she belongs to Circle Number 2. The celebration June 17 drew over 75 family members from West Virginia, Virginia, Ohio, Maryland and New York. The Useys Have A Son By Helen W. Searle Saint Anthony Maria Zaccaria Cremona is a rather large north- eastern Italian city, located about 50 miles southeast of Milan. Cremona is the home of the fine Cremona vio- lins, especially those made by the Arnati family, Antonio Stradivara and Giuseppe Guarnieri from the 16th through the 18th centuries. In 150,2, Cremona was the place of birth of Anthony Azccaria. During his short lifetime six popes held office as the Church and the western world be- gan to undergo many changes. An- thony became an early mover of this Counter-Reformation. Anthony was eighteen when his father died, but with the strong spiri- tual support of his mother, who dedi- cated her life to his education, he went on to Padua to study medicine at the University. He received his degree in 1524 and opened his practice in his hometown. Soon he realized it was of equal importance to heal souls as welt as bodies. He began his studies for the priesthood. In 1528, at the age of twenty-six, he was ordained. Many reports state that angels were seen at his first Mass. His work brought him to Milan where he founded two religious or- ders: the Angelicals of Saint Paul for women and the Barnabites, congre- gation of Clerks Regular of Saint Paul. for men. With the Gospel of Saint Paul time Apostle as his guide lines and the personality of Saint Paul as his inspiration he and his religious communities continued their ministry. Anthony introduced many new ideas to reinforce and strengthen the importance of individual spiritual- ity. He encouraged frequent com- munion. He introduced the practice of the Forty Hours Devotion and the ringing of the church bells on Fri- days at 3 p,m. as a reminder of Christ's constant existence in our lives. He promoted the concept of the laity working together with the Church. Constantly teaching, Anthony became ill on a m4ssion of peace and returned to his mother's in Cre- mona where he died in 1539 at the early age of thirty-six. He was buried above ground and for twenty-six years his body remained incorrupt He was then buried in damp soil un- til 1664 when only his skeleton was found. These bones are encased in a glass reliquary beneath the rnam altar of the Church of Saint Barnaba in Milan. Although some politicians attempted to exert influence on Church policy for their own personal gain, Anthony Zaccaria dedicated himself to nullifying these efforts. His feast day is celebrated July 5. Kenneth W. Norma J. Holcomb and Kenneth W.
