MaryEtta Burr

MaryEtta Burr, 73, of Waynesville, North Carolina, passed away on Monday, July 3, 2017.
MaryEtta, who was the wife of the late Dane Burr, was also preceded in death by her daughter, Megan Cryberg of Chardon, Ohio, and her parents, Cliff and Faye Burr of La Porte City.
She is survived by her son, David Cryberg (Becky MacDonald), her granddaughter Rachel Cryberg of Beverly Hills, Mi., and her brother, Jim Burr (Kathy Miller) and their children Diana Simpson (Dick) and Tom (Jaisha Patel) and their families in Orlando, Fl.
MaryEtta graduated from La Porte City High School in 1962 and from Ohio State University where she earned a BFA in Ceramics in 1966. MaryEtta enjoyed working in clay and being in her studio creating beautiful stoneware and pottery in the hope that her art would be used in everyday life. For more than 20 years, MaryEtta and her late husband, Dane, built Burr Studio on Main Street in downtown Waynesville into a well-respected art gallery featuring their art and the art of many talented local and regional artists. In addition to her commitment to her art and the local artist community, MaryEtta was passionate about the lives of her family and friends. She could often be found sharing news about her granddaughter, Rachel, or laughing with friends in the gallery over a cup of tea.
Family and friends gathered Saturday, July 8 at the Wells Funeral Home Event Center to celebrate MaryEtta’s life. For anyone wishing to make a contribution in her memory, the family has requested donations to be made to the American Diabetes Association (www.diabetes.org).

Freckles’ Adopt a Pet – July 19, 2017

Freckles and The Progress Review encourage potential pet owners who are loving and responsible to consider adopting a pet from the Cedar Bend Humane Society.
Cuddles was brought to Cedar Bend after her previous owners had a new baby and is about 3 years old and declawed on her front paws. She is a laid back girl who enjoys being petted and loved on. She is an affectionate girl, who does well with other felines, and has done well with dogs in the past. Cuddles would make a wonderful companion for nearly any home! Her adoption fee is $35.

Meditations – July 19, 2017

By Christopher Simon
Wisdom & Humility Are Complementary
“But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.”  ~ James 3:17 NIV
There is a natural tendency to feel proud when we know things that others don’t, and we can be tempted to show off our knowledge. A significant difference between wisdom and knowledge is that wisdom does not make us prideful, whereas knowledge tends to do so. 
Most careers require us to know things and know how to do things that others don’t, and so it’s fitting and proper for us to have that knowledge or know-how in our lives. But wisdom counsels humility. Wisdom is having perspective, good judgement, and understanding how to prioritize what really matters in life, and using it for the benefit of yourself and others.
Wise people have selfknowledge, understanding both their strengths and weaknesses.They have a broader perspective and are never narrowminded, and yet they can get to the heart of important problems, and are willing and able to help others do it as well. The wise person doesn’t force his or her advice on others or lord it over them, unlike the knowledgeable person,who may feel resentful when his superior knowledge or advice isn’t taken seriously. Wisdom by its very nature makes us humble, because we realize how frail and fleeting our lives are.
