Cass Station.

Mrs. Mattie Crenshaw died at the home of her father, Mr. Sam Pittard, near Grassdale, Saturday morning. Her remains were interred in the Cassville cemetery Sunday afternoon, Rev. B. B. Quillian conducting the services. A very large number of sorrowing relatives and friends witnessed the last sad rites. Mrs. Crenshaw had been married about four years. Her home was in Griffin, where her husband holds a government position.

The Pittard family had a family reunion Christmas and Mr. and Mrs. Crenshaw came up to participate. She contracted a case of measles and her condition grew worse, and on Saturday morning her spirit passed from this world into the sweet rest beyond.

She was a member of the Baptist church and was beloved by many for her kind and sunny disposition. The grief stricken husband and other relatives have the profound sympathy of all.
