Marguerite (Greet) House Haynes Layton, 92, of Malvern, started her Heavenly family reunion on Feb. 27, 2014.Â She was born in Hot Spring County, on Jan, 18, 1922 to Tom House and Judy Caroline Ross. She attended Glen Rose High School, where she played on the varsity basketball team.Â
Mrs. Layton was primarily a housewife and mother and enjoyed fishing and crocheting.Â Although she didnâ€™t like to cook, she had a special knack for creating â€śgoodâ€ť meals out of nothing, one of which was our favorite lunch, chocolate syrup and saltine crackers.
One of Benton's oldest and most famous restaurants shut its doors at close of business Saturday -- for good. Ed and Kay's opened in 1982, changing from Ed and Alma's. On Saturday, owner Kay Diemers closed shop, ending the reign of the "Mile High Pies" in Saline County.
