Locals reach out to tornado victim

 

Last updated 12/15/2021 at Noon



Christine Burton lived and worked in Sisters for many years before moving to Mayfield, Kentucky with her fiancée. Last weekend, their home and all their possessions were completely destroyed by the massive tornado that devastated Mayfield as it cut a swath across the American Midwest.

The couple is grateful to have escaped with their lives, protected by a staircase that remained intact.

“The staircase pretty much saved their lives,” said Shelley Marsh of Sisters.

Marsh and Tami Luce Jones of Sisters have launched a campaign to assist Burton.

“In an effort to help so many miles away, Tami and I are collecting gift cards to send their way,” March said.

Cards should be for national entities like Amazon, VISA, and the like, since very little remains of Mayfield.

Marsh and Jones request that cards be dropped off at Western Title, 330 W. Hood Ave. in Sisters, next to Beacham’s Clock Co., or at Metamorphosis Salon at 161 N. Elm St., Sisters.The goal is to send their way no later than Thursday of this week.

“I’d like to do it so they get them before Christmas,” Marsh said.
