Death of Mrs. Arthur Branson.
About seven o'clock last night the
angel of death entered the home of
Mr. Arthur Brunson and bore away
the spirit of his beloved wife, who,
before their marriage, was Miss Ber
tha Speights of Walterboro, a sister
of Mrs. E. H. Folk. Mrs. Brunson had
.been a great sufferer for more than
a year and although Mr. Brunson had
carried her to the hospitals in Augus
ta several times for special treatment
no relief could be found. In fact,
some time ago loved ones were made
to realize that it was only a matter
of time before death would relieve
Mrs. Brunson of her suffering, but
the end was not expected at this time,
consequently the announcement of
her death was a great shock to her
Although Mrs. Brunson was not
very intimately known by a large
number of people, for she remained
close at home finding her chief joy
in making the home comfortable, at
tractive and happy, for her loved
ones, yet she was genuinely 'beloved
by many friends, those appreciating
her superior qualities and real worth
most who knew her best. Warm-hearts
ed, generous and unselfish almost tel
a fault, Mrs. Brunson never failed tOf
win the esteem and affection of those';
with whom she came in contact. SheV
was a devout Christian, a member of
the First Baptist church.
Besides her devoted husband, Mrs.
Brunson leaves two daughters, Mrs'.
Lydia Thompson, who has been with
her mother for some time affection1*
ately ministering to her, and Kate,
a little daughter four years old, and
two sons, S. A. Brunson, Jr., who jjs'
in the navy, and Isaac Brunson. The
Advertiser extends sincere sympathy
to these bereaved friends.
The funeral and interment will
take place this afternoon at four,
