Death of Miss Sudie Covar.
. For all the sixty-three years of her
life, Miss Sudie Covar has Jbeen a
resident of Edgefield. She has lived a
calm life as appears to the outside
world, but full of responsibilities
'and cares within her home circle.
When she was but a girl she became
a member of the Baptist church,
having been baptized by Rev. Luther
Broadus and converted under the
preaching of Dr. Luther Gwaltney.
Over the mantel of her bed room at
the time of her. death hung a picture
of another beloved pastor and his
wife, Rev. and Mrs. T. D. Clark,
j For more than three years Miss
Sudie has been failing in health, and
has not been able to do as much as
she had done in the past to serve the
world and her community, but she i
was always cheerful and sympathet-1
ic and helpful as far as she could.
Many year sago, her sister, Mrs.
Paul, died leaving nine children with
Miss Sudie left to take care of them.
The youngest, Mr. Warren Paul,
was but two years of age and Mr.
Tom Paul and Ellie, a few years old
er. At the time of Miss Sudie's death
i was living with Messrs. James
and Tom Paul and Miss Ellie. <
She died about 8 o'clock Saturday
morning, having risen at the usual
hour and dressed for breakfast, and
going into the kitchen complained of
being cold, and in a few minutes be
came helpless and id the aid of
friends or physicia: .. Jhe was laid to
rest qn 'Sunday afternoon under a
lovely magnolia tree which she had
planted with her own hands to shade !
and shelter the resting place of her i
beloved dead who had passed be- '
fore. She was always, as long as she
could be, an attendant on Sunday
School and church services and a con
tributer as her means allowed to ev
ery goNod work.
The funeral occurred at the Baptist
church, Dr. R. G. Lee, her pastor and
near neighbor, officiating. Her favor
ite hymns were sung and many of
those who loved her were prese on
the front seat and many friend?, who
had known her from her youth up
came to do her memory reverence.
Beautiful flowers covered her last
resting place and were covered in
the grave with her. Dr. Lee made
a most appropriate and touching
tribute to her life as he had known
her for sixteen months. Those who
are left of her immediate family, her
nieces and nephews are Messrs.
James, William, Tom and Warren
and Miss Ellie Paul.
