Lois Whitmore Tribble was born Christmas Day, 1930 in Winter Park, Fla., with a wanderlust for life. In her 82 years, she lived all over the world, from Utah to Taiwan, with her husband of 59 years, Henry “Bud” Tribble, before passing away Jan. 9, 2013. Lois' love of adventure never ceased, though she was just as content sitting at home in Frederick, Md., with Bud, reading a good book. Lois, who prided herself on always living life the way she wanted, leaves this legacy of wanderlust and gusto for life to her children, Timothy, Leslie, James, David and Lisa, in hopes they will carry on her love for all things family and the joy of a good adventure.

Joe Beeman grew up on a cattle farm in Garrett County, Md. His family was Irish and firmly grounded in the Christian faith. Decembers were characterized by Christmas carols, evergreens strung with lights and ornaments, and family gathered around for satisfying home-cooked meals. Christmas time always was a big deal. Even as an adult, Beeman gathered with his five sisters for Christmas at his childhood home, a “big house full of people” where there was “always music going on.” So imagine the shock to his system when on Dec. 25, 2004, Beeman, now 33, of Hagerstown, found himself across the globe in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul.

andrews@herald-mail.com BOONSBORO - Dates and names are getting harder for Martha Rice to remember now that she's 102 years old. But hymns, though, she sings - and remembers - sharply. "What a friend we have in Jesus," Rice sings, after some prompting. "All our sins and griefs to bear! What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer!" The most important advice for a long, healthy life, she said, is "try to serve the Lord, for He's our boss. " Rice turned 102 Wednesday - Christmas Day. The staff and residents at Reeders Memorial Home in Boonsboro, where she has lived for the last two years, threw her a party on Christmas Eve. Rice was born in Wolfsville in Frederick County, Md., and fondly cherishes the years she attended Salem United Methodist Church.

A poem for Christmas ’Twas just days before Christmas and all through our town, lights are twinkling in windows and snow covers the ground.   The houses are filled with the holiday cheer and children await as St. Nicholas nears.   Decorations fill our homes and carols float through the air. Cookies are made, enough to be shared.   Wrap all the presents and mail out the cards, Christmas is upon us, it’s really not that hard.   To share the good tidings and sincere Christmas cheer.

The Rev. Tom Claggett is no stranger to the Brunswick area. A descendent of the first Episcopal bishop of Maryland, Claggett resides on a farm that has been in his family since 1793. He is a native son of St. Mark's Parish, which includes Grace Episcopal Church in Brunswick. When Bishop Eugene Sutton assigned Claggett to Grace, it was more like a homecoming. Claggett splits his ministry between Grace and St. Paul's in Point of Rocks, Md.   The church also has welcomed the Rev. Anjel Scarborough, who will serve the parish.
