Here they had three children, Patricia Gail Cease, Carol Jean Clark and Mark Allen Lenz. The couple owned and operated a feed store which sold hay and tack in the nearby vicinity.
They moved away from the Valley and their grandchildren were born: Carol’s son Jason A Clark; Patricia’s children Crystal Fowler, Christopher Fowler and John Fowler; and Mark’s children Alex Lenz, Angel Lenz, Anthony Lenz and Abigail Lenz.
Upon retirement from their occupations they decided to move to Glasgow in 1988. They enjoyed so many friends and family here. James loved to help the elderly with yard work and kept busy by working in his garage. Cars were his passion. Grandma Lucille helped at the nursing home and hospital as a RN Charge Nurse, she loved the healthcare community. She loved people and loved crosswords and had a big heart for the hurt and needy.
