Edith Nowels of Middletown kneels outside Westminster Presbyterian Church on Tindall Road. The congregation placed American flags on the church lawn recently in memory of those who have died in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Nowels’ brother, Buddy Thorne, was killed during World War II in the Battle of the Bulge. Thorne Middle School in Middletown was named in his memory.
