Death has again visited our
community and taken away one of our brightest and fairest maidens in
the person of Miss Mary Townsend, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
James O. Townsend, who fell a victim of consumption.
Her decease though not
unexpected, came rather suddenly. She had been feeling some better
earlier in the week, so much so that she spent Monday with her
former schoolmate Mrs. A. Sovereen, but suffered a relapse on
Thursday and expired in the evening.
The funeral was held on
Sunday afternoon, services being conducted by Rev. R. H. Bell in the
Methodist church, and was attended by a large number of
Interment took place in
Greenwood cemetery at Waterford. The pall bearers were Frank
Geo. Bauslaugh, Fred Stuart, Will Brewer and
Wallace and Arthur Pursel.
Mr. and Mrs. Townsend desire
to express their thanks to the many kind friends for their sympathy
and assistance in their sad bereavement.
