Frawley the newest Ms. Syl-View

On a “Night of Music and Love,” Linnie Frawley was crowned the newest Ms. Syl-View during the annual pageant at the health care center March 19.

Frawley told the crowd that she was a big country music fan who has been to Nashville. The 2009 Ms. Syl-View said she has met vocal legends Don Williams, George Jones and Tammy Wynette.

She worked in clothing stores in Sylvania and Statesboro where she had the chance to wait on customers.

“I liked it,” Frawley said. “I liked meeting different people.”

She informed the large gathering that included Miss Screven County 2008 Miah Johnson that Syl-View is special to her.

“I told them I couldn’t go on my own,” Frawley said. “I had so many falls, but here you get good care.”

Frawley will be honored at the Screven County Livestock Festival Pageant Saturday night in the high school auditorium. The pageant begins at 7 p.m.

The pageant first runner-up was Queen Scott, while Ila Sheffield was selected as second runner-up by a panel of judges.

Scott said she used to visit the local senior citizen center to be with friends. Now she motors around Syl-View in her wheelchair.

“I’ve got to keep my speed down. I don’t have a license,” said Scott, who too had kind words about the health care facility. “It is a nice place and it is better than being at home by yourself.”

Sheffield worked at Statesboro Nursing Home for 21 years preparing meals for 99 patients and approximately 20 employees.

“I really enjoyed it,” Sheffield said of her employment at the nursing home. Now she resides at Syl-View.

“It is a good place to be,” said Sheffield of Syl-View, “and they take care of you.”

The other contestants who vied for the title of Ms. Syl-View were Doris Lawson, Pauline Oliver, Joyce Smith and Mary Thomas.

For music that Thursday evening, “Teen Volunteer of the Year” Rachel Brown and locals Vicki Bragg and Marilyn Reddick performed special songs, while Glen Walden sang five songs throughout the pageant.

Along with Brown, “Adult Volunteer of the Year” Justin Brannen and “Outstanding Volunteer of he Year” Betty Purvis were each presented with plaques for their dedication to Syl-View and its residents.

The pageant was sponsored by the Sylvania Junior Woman’s Club, Federal Medical, Mike Johnson, Nightingale Hospice, and Syl-View administrator Toni Ellison.
The reception after the pageant was organized by Middle Ground Baptist Church, McBrideMethodistChurch and the Syl-View Dietary Staff.

The master of ceremonies was Ricky Allen, minister of education for the First Baptist of Statesboro.
