To know Grandmother was to love her as she was always thoughtful of others and consequently had a great many friends and the most of whom cherish a piece of needle work made by her hands, for she was always busy at something for some one else.
The funeral services were held Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the Methodist Church, Rev. H. G. Langley in charge.
