Warren Coble & Associates – To Warren…Everyone is Family

I met Warren Coble at a committee meeting for the local Alzheimer’s Walk many years ago.  He was passionate about the cause, having learned firsthand how devastating the disease can be, not only on the person with dementia or Alzheimer’s but on the family members providing care for them.  At the time, he struck me as a remarkably caring individual, to whom family means everything. Warren was born and raised in Randolph County.  He has been happily married to Robbie Kinney Coble for 44 years, has three children, four grandchildren,…

Her grandfather owned coal mines as well as other collateral businesses and her dad and sister have created several successful small businesses throughout her life.  Though she inherited her business sense from her dad’s side of the family, her creative side certainly came down through her mom.

Logo of Love

Sometimes, the best ideas come to us in the least likely places. Brandi Crumley, owner of Ennobra Bloom Boutique, was driving to Lexington one day last summer, listening to K-Love and they were talking about how Romans built the cross, and it was their symbol.  They continued on to say that God was able to turn that symbol into one of love.  In an instant, the road faded to the background and the Logo of Love image popped into her brain, perfectly formed and she quickly pulled over to the…

Nella Boutique – Faith, Family, Friendship & Fashion

Donna Allen opened a small booth, Nella & Co., inside Circa Gallery on Sunset Avenue in the spring of 2012.  With a few gifts, scarves and handbag items, it was a fun little side business.  When Circa Gallery closed, she brought all her items home and she approached her daughters, Gina, Emily and Jillian, about starting up a virtual store.  The girls thought it was a great idea and so it began. They sold out of the first items quickly, and put all of the money right back into buying…

I Am Asheboro – Marlo Francis

I have a cross-stitch hanging in my house that perfectly sums up how my life began, “I wasn’t born in North Carolina – but I got here as fast as I could!” My parents ended up in the Midwest when my father was hired by B.B. Walker Shoe Co. and was sent to win Chicago over with his sample cases brimming over with work boots stitched right here on Dixie Drive. When I was 2 months old, Daddy got a promotion we relocated our family of 5 to Asheboro, where…
