Christway Baptist Church members and Sue Ezanack, Neva Hymes and Nola Ellington were nominated for their contribution to their community through work with and development of The Lanell Ezanack Samaritan House, which was named after a much-loved church member who passed away two years ago, according to those who nominated them. The object of Samaritan House is to sell clothes and other items at very low prices and use the money from the sales to fund utility help and prescription help for senior citizens. They also offer free items to families who experience disaster such as a house fire and help seniors fill out forms for reduced or free prescription services. The church held fundraisers for several months, purchased an old mobile home and began work. For months these ladies would go to garage sales and ask for donations of clothes and items left over from private garage sales in order to stock the shelves with items for sale.
Nola Ellington Stonecipher and Bobby Ellington
We got married on December 15, 1967. It was a cold and rainy day. I
had an apartment in Shreveport and Bobby lived a few blocks away at his
motherís house. We were going to go to a Justice of the Peace and get
married because we couldnít afford a wedding. Bobbyís brother lived out
in the country north of Alexandria. They told us to come down and have
the wedding at their house.
