naiiy excellent qualities, with a host
if friends, a devoted wife and moth[ I.
For many years she was a consecrated

in that community prior to her reinov.nl
to Newberry ibis year.
Her remains were laid to rest in
IJoseniont cemetery Sunday morning,
a large concourse of people being
present at the funeral services, to
pay their last respects to the memory
of ibis well-beloved woman.
Besides her husband, and her son,
