The man standing with Guilford Worsley is a Mr. Smith (can't remember his first name) who was owner of Smith Electric Co. on Evans Street near Worsley's Shoe Store.Juanita Worsley Williams, now 99 (11-29-11) continues to live in her home in Farmville. On a rather recent birthday her son, retired Dr. Rod Williams of Roanoke Rapids, gave her a trampoline for her birthday (she had a larger one, but he felt she needed a smaller one). Each year on her birthday her three children, one being Nan who has lived in England for many years, and a daughter Lula Lee who lives in Lexington and other family and friends help fulfill her wish of having lunch at Parker's Barbecue. Her husband was Dr. Roderick Williams who had his practice in Farmville until his death.
