MICK MARIETTA IS IN A NURSING HOME WHERE HE WILL REMAIN FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE AFTER A STROKE. HE WOULD ENJOY PHONE CALLS FROM HIS CHILDHOOD FRIENDS TO CHEER HIM UP. His number is 573 885-4500, ask for Mick Marietta. It may be difficult to communicate with him. Mail address is Cuba Manor, 210 Eldon Drive, Cuba, MO 65453.


We seem to all be suffering a common problem these days, WHERE DID OUR LIVES GO? Our brains seem to still be 18, but our bodies are talking a different language. Sarah Orne Jewett puts it much more eloquently than do I:

“Neither of my companions was troubled by her burden of years. I hoped in my heart that I might be like them as I lived on into age, and then smiled to think that I too was no longer very young. So we always keep the same hearts, though our outer framework fails and shows the touch of time.”

Mrs. Toothman, of Green Parrot Restaurant fame, dies at age 97 - KHS65 mom

From the Webster-Kirkwood Times comes the obituary today of KHS65 member Diane Toothman Hudson's mom.  If you ever ate at Green Parrot Restaurant, you know why the Toothman family was so well respected in Kirkwood.  See the side panel on my blog if you don't remember Green Parrot!  Our sincerest condolences to Diane and her family in the loss of Mrs. T.  Thanks to Peggy Kramer Entenman for alerting me to this sad event. 

Veronie Olga Toothman

Died: Sunday, September 18, 2016
Age: 97

Toothman, Veronie Olga of Kirkwood, Mo., was born Oct. 22, 1919, in Crosstown, of Perry County, Mo., to August and Martha (nee Wahlers) Bohnert. She entered into rest Sunday, Sept. 18, 2016, at St. Clare Hospital in Fenton, Mo., at the age of 97 years.

She is preceded in death by her parents; her late husband, Ben H. Toothman; her son, Lawrence Toothman; her son-in-law, Robert Hudson; her brothers, Oscar Bohnert, Wilbert Bohnert, Edgar Bohnert and Arnold Bohnert, and her sisters-in-law, Erna Bohnert, Monetta Bohnert and Lorna Bohnert.

She is survived by two children, Diane Hudson and Louis Toothman; four grandchildren, Tara Hudson, Barbara (Timothy) Kohn, Amanda (David) Flowers and Rob (Candice Suddarth) Hudson; five great-grandchildren, Lauren and Garrett Kohn, Mackenzie, Madalynn and Camryn Flowers; brother Edward Bohnert; sisters-in-law Loretta Bohnert and Lorene Bohnert, and many other relatives and friends.

Veronie moved to St. Louis and met Ben Toothman, and they were married in 1946. Together with family they ran the famous Green Parrot Inn in Kirkwood, Mo., known for their famous fried chicken and family-style dining. After Green Parrot closed, she continued to be involved with the local community. She is fondly remembered and will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.
