EDWARD COON (L-R), “DENNY” TERRELL, AND VERA JEAN EAKLE MEET UP WITH AN OLD FRIEND AND PLAYMATE FROM RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET, WHEN MARY BLAND WHITING STRICKLAND HEARD THEY WERE VISITING THE HOLT HOUSE AND RAN OVER FOR A HEARTFELT AND CHEERFULL REUNION.
It’s always nice to come home to Glenville after a long absence, especially if you can gain entrance to your old home to relive some of those pleasant childhood memories on East Main Street.
In the recent visit of Vera Jean Nottingham Eakle’s family, the above hoped for reuniting took place without a fuss, because her old home is now the Historic Holt House Museum, the birthplace of Helen Holt Mollohan, the late wife of a U.S. Congressman and mother of another.
But, by way of introduction and attachment to this city and house, Vera Jean, about age 90, was a longtime secretary for Dr. Harry Heflin, the Glenville State College President, during the 1950s and early 1960s. “He was a wonderful man and I enjoyed working for him,” she states, adding: “I even worked for him part-time as a student.”
