Wilhelmina set to leave hospital

Wilhelmina Tuten, 72, was scheduled to return home from St. Joseph’s Hospital Tuesday after a fall in her home last week broke three ribs and punctured a lung, said Susie Magee of the Pembroke American Legion Auxiliary.

"They weren’t sure Monday if she would be able to go home Tuesday, but with the promise of home health nurses to help her, they decided it would be okay," said Magee.

In July, Tuten was allegedly beaten by her son Clinton Nesmith. Nesmith remains in jail.

A donation account for Tuten has been established at Heritage Bank, and there are collection containers placed around the city of Pembroke at Alco, Pembroke Pharmacy, Luann’s, Bedingfield’s, and Owen’s Supply.
