Joan Jackson, 79, of Borger, died Monday July 4, 2011, in Dumas.
Services will be at 10 a.m. Thursday at St. Andrew United Methodist Church with Rev. Ted Wilson, Pastor, officiating. Interment will be in "The Garden of Love" at Westlawn Memorial Park under the direction of Minton/Chatwell Funeral Directors of Borger.
Even with the disaster declaration running out and the recent rain that has come to Hutchinson County, a countywide burn ban is still in effect for now.
The ban, which was initially approved in January of this year and then extended in April, prohibits the burning of trash and any type of burning in open pits. It does not affect farmers who do agricultural burning, but does restrict other types of outdoor burning.
