THE GOLDEN ROLL


| July/August 1988



My husband ADONIS (DON) M. ROAT suffered a heart attack November 23, 1987 and passed away.

He belonged to the Miami Valley Steam Threshers Association and was a member of the steam shows for many years. He loved all those shows. I went with him until my health got so bad I couldn't go. I sure do miss him.

He was 65 years of age. He was born July 2, 1922.

On Friday, March 18, we were saddened to learn of the death of MARJORIE WEBB. Marjorie was a special lady. A LADY in every way. She was a loving wife, caring mother, doting grandmother, and loyal friend.

Marjorie worked hard for our club. For years she handled show registration single handed, she always donated baked goods to be sold at the show, and she and Dennis started our annual steamed hot dog feast after the show closed to the public. Before 'Minnie' (a steam engine) was forced into retirement Marjorie and Dennis were busy preparing the engine for the show even before the show was off the ground. At the show she would answer questions put to her by visitors, or just stand back and beam with pride as she listened to Dennis explain what made the Minneapolis steam traction engine work.
