My brother, J. Don Bell, and I were both priviledged to have Dr. Denmark as our physician back in the 50's & 60's when we were growing up in Marietta. I remember Dr. Denmark vividly, and I can still hear her giving instructions to many parents, mine included, (Jesse & Doris Bell), to make sure, (we) the children, went outside daily, no matter the weather, (sunny or stormy).
From my childhood our paths kept crossing. Living now in Sylvania, (not too far from Portal), I've discovered some of her relatives and friends, some in their 100's (having attended Tift college along side of Dr. Denmark). She was a remarkable woman. Her teachings are worth remembering, studying, and following. To her daughter, Mary, all of us in Sylvania are thinking of you and recalling our experiences with Dr. Denmark. It is so amazing how God puts people in the pathway of others. God's 'timing' and 'coordinating relationships' is wonderful. I would count it a joy to hear Dr. Denmark sharing her experiences during the 114 years & 60 days of her life. (When we all get to heaven, what a day that will be!) We are thankful for the love of this physician & friend, Dr. Denmark.
