Also surviving are his brother, Arden (& Millie) and his sister, Ruth, as well as many nieces and nephews. Waldemar was predeceased by his parents, Wilhelm and Olga Fischer Bobrowski and his brothers, Reinholdt and Herbert Bobrowski. Waldemar was born in Kamionkda, Poland on October 25, 1928. He arrived in Manitoba, Canada with his family in 1935. He began a career as an arc welder while in Canada. He soon felt the call of God to be a minister. He graduated from Hillcrest Christian College in Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada. He had a strong desire to serve those living in Appalachia but needed to complete his education. He attended and graduated from North Central College, Illinois and then went on to graduate from Naperville Seminary, Naperville, Illinois. While attending seminary, he served as student pastor in Scarboro and Harmon, Illinois. He and the family then moved to Jamestown, Kentucky where he was the pastor at Union Chapel/Manntown Evangelical Churches for six years. His 33 years with the Red Bird Missionary Conference began as pastor on the main campus at Beverly, Ky. for six years. Waldemar, Pauline and family then moved to Booneville, Kentucky. After serving in Booneville for 14 years, they packed their belongings again to serve at the Manchester/Beech Creek churches for eight years. Waldemar retired from the Red Bird Missionary Conference in 1995. Waldemar received a phone call asking if he would be willing to serve as a pastor in Ninilchik, Alaska. Waldemar and Pauline agreed to serve for one year. They packed a few personal items, and sight unseen, ventured to the pristine Alaskan environment. Both Waldemar and Pauline fell in love with the area and the people of Ninilchik and stayed for five years. The desire to be closer to family and the grandchildren brought them back to Kentucky, where they purchased a home in London. Not being able to sit still for very long, Waldemar spent many hours as a volunteer at the Bennett Center of London, a mission institution of the Red Bird Missionary Conference of the United Methodist Church. Waldemar always had a smile on his face; he never knew a stranger. He touched many lives and made many friends with his genuine, caring, friendly manner.

Burch, Versal "Joe"

Dixon, WY – Versal “Joe” Burch died July 24, 2007 at age 84. He was born February 25, 1923, outside Booneville, KY, near Island City, in Owsley County, to Taylor and Lavada (Carmack) Burch. He was one of 10 children to be raised on the family farm. His marriage to Evelyn Gray began on February 4, 1946, after he returned from World War II. Joe and Evelyn relocated to Colorado in the early 1960’s. They have raised five children, 15 grandchildren and 17 great grandchildren, all of whom were adored and cherished by their father/grandfather. Joe began ranching in the early 1970’s after purchasing a ranch north of Steamboat Springs. In 1992, they relocated to a ranch near Dixon, Wyoming, just on the Colorado/Wyoming border. Joe truly enjoyed the country life and relished the hard work. Even at 84 years old, he still enjoyed irrigating, taking care of his cattle and overseeing every aspect of the ranch. He truly enjoyed working and could work circles around most men, even those half his age. Throughout the years, many strangers may have knocked on his door, but they never were strangers when they left. They were life-long friends. He was loved by everyone who had the pleasure of his company. He was kind, loving, honest, hard working, generous and compassionate. Joe was made up of all the greatest qualities and had a heart of pure gold. He was a great provider and treasured his wife, Evelyn, of 61 years, and adored his entire family. Joe also loved hunting, fishing, playing cards and marble games and truly loved pranks and jokes. He was funny himself and took great pleasure in making everyone around him smile. He was a small man in stature, but he wasn’t a “small man”. He was a huge man with a huge heart and was a huge part of our lives. He will be greatly missed but will live on forever in the memories held in our hearts. Survivors include his wife, Evelyn; children, Burdetta, Larry, Barbara, Greg and Lori; 15 grandchildren; 17 great grandchildren; sisters, Opal, Jeanette, Beatrice, Wilma, Lola and Marlene; and brothers, Vernon and Leon. It brings great comfort to know he is in a better place with God looking after him and guiding him through Heaven. God must have needed another angel. Memorial services were held at 3:00 p.m., Saturday, July 28, 2007, at the Episcopal Church in Dixon, Wyoming. The burial was at the Savery Cemetery, with a potluck gathering for family and friends immediately following at the Burch Ranch. Everyone was welcome. Booneville Sentinel August 9, 2007.
