Several from Floyd Co. honered at Riverview Health Care ceremony

Riverview Health Care Center held its annual Hall of Fame ceremony last month, and some names familiar to Floyd County were among those honored. The banquet was held Dec. 15 at the center and recognized both residents and community members for their support.

The three residents honored during the ceremony included Lynn "Jack" Cobbs, who was recognized for his distinguished military service and personal accomplishments. During World War II, he received a purple heart and a bronze star for his service. Recognized for her distinguished service in academia and volunteerism, Danese Fannin Amburgey saw a need for an education and began her teaching career at age 19. And Melvina "Nina" Howell, employed by the Floyd County Board of Education as a cook and lunchroom manager at John M. Stumbo Elementary School, was recognized as well. She retired after 32 years, then volunteered for the Salvation Army and the Mud Creek Senior Citizens Center.
