Mr. Allen Brown of Campbellsville passed peacefully from this life on Friday, June 21, 2019 in Elizabethtown at the Hardin Memorial Hospital after an extended illness. Born on August 11, 1946 to the late Luther and Josie (Lee) Brown, he was 72 years, 10 months, and 10 days of age. He had made a profession of faith in Christ and was a member of the Mannsville Christian Church. He was a retiree, having worked at the Ingersol-Rand plant and the Fruit of the Loom factory.
Mr. Brown enjoyed being around cars. He loved watching NASCAR, and was a meticulous detailer, but he had a passion above that – UK basketball. He watched every game he possibly could, and kept up with the team activities during the offseason. Perhaps the only thing he loved more than the Wildcats was his precious wife, Mary.
Along with his companion and soulmate, Mrs. Mary Ann (Benningfield) Brown, he leaves to cherish his memory:
Four siblings: Margaret Andrews of Jamestown, Pearl Perkins of Greensburg, Ruby Wright and husband Tommy of Campbellsville, and Tommie Brown of Richmond,
Special friends: Kim Osbourn, and Ashley & Dell Gribbins, all of Campbellsville,
And a host of extended family and friends.

There will be a funeral service to honor the life of Mr. Brown on Monday, June 24, 2019 at 11:00 AM EST (10:00 AM CST) in the chapel of the L.R.

Mrs. Moneta Kay (Yates) Henderson of Campbellsville passed from this life on Friday, June 21, 2019 at her home. Born in Hutchinson, Texas on February 5, 1939 to the late William Doyal and Carmen Moneta (Hawkins) Yates, she was 80 years, 4 months, and 16 days of age. She, alongside her husband David, owned Tec-Fab Inc., an aluminum and fabrication shop. She had made a profession of faith in Christ and was a member of the Hogard’s Chapel United Methodist Church. She was also a member of the Order of the Eastern Star, Greensburg Chapter 232.
Raised in Stinnett, Texas, she attended the Stinnett High School, graduating in 1957. She was in the marching band helping the Stinnett Rattlers win a state football championship that year, and no one was more proud than she. During that time, she was also a girl in love – but her parents forbade marriage until an appropriate age. Ever respectful of their wishes, she waited one day after her 18th birthday to marry her sweetheart, Mr. David Lee Henderson. They later travelled the country, working in various locations, finally settling in Campbellsville. They remained a devoted couple until his death in 2007.
Mrs. Henderson was an excellent seamstress, and, in her early days in Campbellsville, managed a fabric store. In her spare time, she was a volunteer with the Taylor County Hospital Auxiliary, and always had an uplifting word for the sick and weak. There was never a stray animal around her that went unfed or without shelter. The love she had in her heart made her especially proud of her daughter’s accomplishments as a professionally-renowned portrait artist, and she regularly shared quips and stories about her life.
She leaves to cherish her memory:
Three grandchildren: Rain Clair Thomas of San Diego, CA, Mason Doyal Thomas of Murray, KY, and Warren Younger Thomas and wife Kristen of Louisville,
Great-grandsons: Roman Thomas, Cole Thomas, and Thomas Rex Buchanan, and one more expectant great-grandson,
