Mrs. Miles Dobbins.

We regret to record the death of Mrs. Miles G. Dobbins jr., which took place last Thursday afternoon. She was the daughter of the late Prof. Wm. Henry Waddell of Athens, and was a woman of remarkable beauty and charming manners, and was a favorite with all who knew her. She moved to this place with her mother and step-father Mr. W. I. Heyward about six years ago and was married to Mr. Dobbins on February of last year.

The following beautiful tribute to her memory appeared in the Atlanta Journal a day or two after her death.

“Fashioned so slenderly, young and so fair.”

Only those who are cognizant of the beautiful personality of the late Mrs. Miles C. Dobbins, nee Miss Annie Waddell, can understand with what profound sorrow the announcement of her death at her home in Cartersville, on Thursday morning, was received by her friends.

Her’s was indeed a nature of rare perfection. Endowed with all the charms and graces of physical beauty, there shown through her trusting spirit a purity of mind and a sympathetic womanliness that endeared her to every acquaintance.

Coming from a family famed for its beauty, gentility and intellectuality, she combined in a harmonious measure each of these qualities of a peerless character. Her disposition—sweet and gentle in its influence—charmed all who came in contact with her. Queenly of bearing, she yet combined with it a graciousness that was captivating. The fact that she was stricken when her rare womanliness was just reaching the fullness of its development makes her death the sadder, and touches the deepest chords of sympathy in every heart that claimed her friendship.
