BY JACK SHORT - Miranda Weese-Solomon wants to stay planted here on the island, and with roots as deep as hers, that’s not surprising at all.
Miranda is an Englewood native. Though she’s moved once because her husband, Justin, is in the Air Force, she loves the Englewood/Boca Grande area. She’s a member of the Cole family that was such a huge part of the commercial fishing industry here on Boca Grande for five generations.
BY MARCY SHORTUSE - Margaret Fugate had a smile like a Boca Grande sunset. It was serene, genuine, and made everyone around her smile as well. She used that smile frequently, and it was the thing that island resident Patsy Fyfe focused on the last time she saw her dear friend Margaret.
“That Margaret Fugate smile,” she said. “I leaned down and patted her arm, and kissed her head. And she looked at me with that big, beautiful Margaret smile.”
Margaret Elizabeth (Nevitt) Fugate of Boca Grande was born on August 1, 1917 and passed away on Tuesday, Oct. 1, 2013. Her family was by her side and, mostly importantly, she was happy.
