The announcement of the death of Mrs. Asa Dobbs, last Monday, carried sadness to many a heart.  She was a beautiful example of Christian living, and by her goodness and gentleness won the love of all who knew her.

Mrs. Asa Dobbs.

Died, Monday morning last, in this city.  She was 49 years of age, and had been a devoted member of the Methodist church for 35 years.  She had been a resident of Cartersville for about twenty years, and her friends were many and were warmly attached to her.  Since Christmas she had been confined to her room, and through all of her severe illness she retained her even serenity of mind and disposition.  Hers was a well-rounded, beautiful character, and she died in the faith – a true Christian.  She was buried at the river graveyard near this city yesterday, Dr. W. H. Felton performing the funeral rites.

Mrs. Dobbs’ many friends and relatives deeply deplore her death.  We sincerely sympathize with her grief-stricken husband and family.
