Mrs. Jennie Cantrell

This estimable lady, the wife of our esteemed townsmen, Mr. S. T. Cantrell, died at her home in this city Tuesday night last at ten o’clock.  She had been in feeble health for twelve months previous to her death, and had been confined to her bed for three months.  She was in her 32nd year.  There are left to mourn her loss a devoted husband and six promising children.

Mrs. Cantrell had been a citizen of Cartersville for two years.  She was a true friend, an affectionate wife, and a kind, gentle, tender mother.  Her death is a great loss indeed to her children.  She was a refined, Christian woman, and a consistent member of the Baptist church.  She was entirely conscious up to the last moment, and died with all the faith and trust of a devoted Christian.  To her grief-stricken family and sorrowing friends, we would say, “This saddening death means nothing more than a release from the cares and pains of life – a translation to Heaven.”
