She Succumbs to the Grim Reaper Last Saturday Morning.

At ten minutes past nine Saturday morning, after a gradual decline of three months, Mrs. W. S. Attaway passed quietly away at her home in the suburbs of Cartersville, surrounded by her family and a few intimate friends.  Mrs. Attaway was the widow of Mr. W. S. Attaway, who preceded her only a few years since.  Prior to her marriage she was Miss Elizabeth Jane Henderson, and was born near Stilesboro, Nov. 24th, 1840.  She was one of Cartersville’s oldest and most respected citizens, and was a consistent member of the Baptist church of this place, and her death will be lamented by all who knew her.  She leaves a son, Mr. D. A. Attaway, of Chattanooga, Tenn. and two daughters, Mrs. J. D. Thomas and Miss Geneva Attaway to mourn her loss.  She was the mother of the late Judge Shelby Attaway.

She had lived a long and useful life, was a faithful soldier of the cross, and has gone to receive the crown that is promised all those who trust in Him and are true to His cause.  While we mourn the loss we have sustained, we can but feel that our loss is her gain.

The funeral service was conducted at the Baptist church, in an impressive manner by the pastor, Rev. A. W. Bealer at half past 3 o’clock Sunday afternoon.  Interment at Oak Hill cemetery.
