This is amazing!
The ways we remember...
This little wonderful client, Riley was the inspiration for taking all these pictures. Too many of us had to let go of our fur babies last year as they crossed the rainbow bridge way too early for our liking, and I began to wonder how many have a beautiful image to hold on to in memory of the paws that have touch our lives and wormed their way into our hearts. I hope these pictures have captured your pet looking their best after a fresh grooming. ￼This has been a labor of love from your groomer and I hope you have enjoyed them all and have gotten your pup put on canvas and framed. Thank you for your patronage and trusting me with such precious little lives. Have a wonderful New Year!!!!! Your groomer Anne.

In Memory of my Dad
G. Robert “Bob” Haney, having spent most of his lifetime as a resident of Winona Lake, passed away on Wednesday, March 20, 2019 at 9:35 p.m. in Warsaw’s Lake City Place. Born on March 15, 1923 in Winona Lake, Bob recently celebrated his 96th birthday.
He was the son of the late Ralph R. and Mary V. (VanDyke) Haney. He attended school at East Wayne (now Jefferson Elementary) and graduated before joining the United States Army on December 14, 1942. He was enlisted at Baer Field, Fort Wayne and honorably served for more than three years. Having earned the rank of sergeant, he spent the majority of his time in Belgium. Bob was honorably discharged on April 20, 1946 from Camp Atterbury. He would return home before earning a bachelor’s degree at Manchester College.
It was while attending Manchester College, Bob would meet the woman with whom he would spend the next 69 years, Joyce King. The two were united in marriage on September 17, 1949 in North Manchester and eventually made their home in Winona Lake.
Bob worked in his parent’s dairy (The Winona Dairy) when he was young and later would retire from the United States Postal Service having served as the Postmaster of Winona Lake before transferring to the Warsaw office. After retirement, Bob took-up work assisting his wife’s grooming business, Joyce’s Pet Pantry. Bob never knew a stranger, could talk to anyone and knew everyone. He was a longtime member of Trinity United Methodist Church where he loved to sing.
Music was a big part of Bob’s life and he instilled that love in his children. He enjoyed singing in the church choir and even directed the choir for some time. He was first chair trumpet player in his youth and played taps for military funeral honors for many years. He had traveled overseas as a member of Music Makers and was often asked to sing for weddings, funerals and even sang to Joyce as she walked down the aisle during the processional at their wedding.
Those who will miss Bob’s songs the most include his wife, Joyce Haney of Winona Lake; sons, Greg (Jane) Haney of Indianapolis and John (Dawn) Haney of Fort Wayne; daughters, Anne (Dave) Bonewitz of Warsaw and Paige Haney of Winona Lake; 10 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren. Also surviving are two brothers, Paul Haney of Winona Lake; Dr. Ben Haney of Almont, MI; and Margaret Palmer of Rome, NY. Paul and Ben, veterans themselves, joined Bob several years ago on an honor flight to Washington, D.C. with son, John as guardian. Those who preceded Bob in passing include a brother, Joel Haney and Joel’s twin, a sister who passed as an infant.
Visitation washeld on Sunday, March 24th from 1 to 4 p.m. at Titus Funeral Home, 2000 East Sheridan Street, Warsaw. A funeral service, officiated by Pastor Ernie Troxell, was on Monday, at 11 a.m. in Trinity United Methodist Church, 832 East Center Street, Warsaw. Burial was in Warsaw’s Oakwood Cemetery with military honors by members of American Legion Post 49, VFW Post 1126, and members of the United States Army.
Ruby had a Birthday!
This little guy Saved my Life! I fell asleep upstairs while cooking boiled eggs. Earlier I put him in, what I thought, was his secure spot (upstairs in my bedroom) so he won't roam at night. I woke up to him in my bed barking like crazy looking at the bedroom door. I smelled the smoke and immediately realized I forgot my boiled eggs cooking. He's truly my Protector! Thank you Anne for being the catalyst for bringing this Beautiful creature into my Life! But the question is, how did he escape that secure spot to protect me? Mommy Loves and needs you Sunshine!
