The announcement Sunday! norning of the death of Mrs. ■'lelle Taylor Honnoll at her home n Verona brought to the hearts >f members of her family resid ng here a life long sorrow, and i sincere bereavement to a host >f friends. Mrs- Honnoll’s health had oeen precarious for some time, out of late the family were en '.ouraged to hope for her ulti mate recovery and her death was a distinct shock to all. On Saturday night after the two little children had been placed in bed and the last linger ing kiss of the mother had been impressed upon their little lip?, the mother was stricken and be ing alone she remained pros trate until the footsteps of some one on the pavement attracted her attention and calling to them she requested that her father be notified. When Mr. Taylor, her father, arrived he assisted her to the bed and Dr. Spencer, the family physician summoned. In a short time her husband, who is a traveling salesman reached home- After several hours her condition greatly improved and it was thought that she would soon recover. Just before six o’clock, however, she was taken suddenly worse and soon breath ed her last. The deceased was the daugh ter of L. T. Taylor and the late Mrs. feallie Calhoun Taylor, and the wife of Mr. VV. S. Honnoll. She was married on October the 15th, 1902 and two bright lit tle children,Joe and Sarah, came to bless the;r home. In the relation of daughter, sister, wife and mother, her life was an ideal one. The bright ness of her sunny disposition brought to her the tender affec tions of her family, the devotion of her husband and the admira tion of every one with whom she was associated. In her life was mingled so gently and so perfectly the quali ties of true womanhood that her influence was benignly felt in every circ'e ano among all classes, In the hearts of her family she was an uncrowned queen, and from all came an homage justly due her. To her husband, she had given strength and courage, and in return was idolized. To her little ones she was a guard ian angel and over their little lives*kept eternal vigilance. She was a consecrated Christian, be ing a member of the Methodist church in Verona. On Monday morning the funeral services were conducted from the church which was filled by sorrowing friends. tRev. Babb, the pastor, paid a beauti ful tribute to the life and charac ter of deceased and offered consolation and assurance that the separation could only be for a few fleeting years. Rav. Price Harris also spoke feelingly and tendered sincere sympathy to the bereaved. 'file remains were laid to rest by the side of her mother in the beautiful cematery at Verona, and above the mound was laid beautiful flowers by loving hands To the aged father, brother and sister, and to the husband and two little ch ldren our affectionate sympathy goes out in the hour of their great sorrow.
