Mi" Tetinlx Towler Gartner.
It was with ti feel i nt? of deepest
sorrow that the numerous friend of
Miss Teiuiie Towler Gartner learned
of her sad and most untimely death,
which occurred last Wednesday
morning shortly after 9 o'clock at
the home of her sister, Mrs. Geo.
Adams, in Nashville. Miss Gartner
had been in ill health for some time,
and for several weeks pasr had been
in Nashville undergoing medic tl
treatment. At times, her family
and friends had hope for her ulti
mate recovery, but cruel disease had
fixed its unrelenting hold upon he,
and at last the "angel reaper" came
to claim its own and gather her pure,
sweet spirit into the ever filling yet
ever unfilled garner of GoJ.
With the death of Miss Gartner, a
pure, noble woman has entered into
life eternal. In her life on earth
there shone fort the gentleness ami
kindness of a most kind and agree
able nature, and the love and de
votion of a most charitable and
Christ like spirit. She bore Iipt suf
ferings with christian fortitude, and
months of sickness and affliction
wrought no change in her gentle
and lovable disposition.
To the bereaved mother and other
relatives to those who were
brought under the direct influence
of her ennobling character the loss
of her presence will indeed be a sad
bereavement. Hut God in His all
wise power can heal their bleeding
hearts, and her "home-going" is
only another tie to bind them closer
Deceased was the daughter of the
late J. T. Gartner, and leaves sur
viving her a mother and four broth
ers and sisters, namely Mesrs.
John and James Gartner and Miss
Amy Gartner, of this city, and Mrs.
Geo. Adams of Nashville.
The remains were brought out
from Nashville yesterday morning,
and the funeral servici s were con
ducted yesterday afternoon at 3:30
o'clock at the family residence, cor
ner North Main and Fifth streets,
by Revs. D. C. Kelley and A. P.
McFerrin. The burial was in Rose
Hill Cemetery, to which last renting
place a long procession followed the
form of one they had loved in life,
and as a last loving token of their
affection, covered the new made
mound with beautiful tJ wers.
The pall bearers were Messrs.
John Latta, Will Bovd, Geo. Alcorn.
W. P. Woldridge, F." 1). Lander and
Judge E. E. Erwin.
