Sad Death at Cassville.

Mrs. Della Crawford, the amiable and much beloved wife of Mr. James B. Crawford, passed peacefully away at her home at Cassville on Tuesday morning last. Some two year ago Mrs. Crawford had a severe spell of the grip, from the effects of which she never recovered, pulmonary trouble developing therefrom and causing finally her death as above stated. Previous to this above attack she had enjoyed the very best of health. Mrs. Crawford was formerly Miss Della Griffin, the daughter of Dr. T. C. Griffin, of Gordon county. She was married to Mr. Crawford about thirteen years ago. She leaves behind besides her husband three children, two boys and one girl. She was a model wife and mother, the sunshine of her lovely disposition permeating as a softening ray the affairs of home life. She was a consistent and dutiful member of the Baptist church and found time from home duties to do much for the cause of religion and the church.

Mrs. Crawford has four sisters and three brothers that survive her. One of the brothers is Dr. W. C. Griffin, of this city.

Her death is much lamented in the large realm of her acquaintance.

Her funeral took place at Cassville yesterday, her pastor, Rev. Charles Wright conducting the services. Her remains were interred in Cassville cemetery.
