Mrs. Collins Dead

Stroke Of Paralysis Carries Away Well Known Lady at Pine Log.

Mrs. Derinda Collins died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. G.W. Covington in Pine Log Friday morning from a stroke of paralysis which she received on Tuesday of last week.

Mrs. Collins was eighty years old and had been in declining health for the past year, and owing to her advanced age was unable to rally and passed away. She was a good and estimable lady and made many friends by her swet and lovable disposition, who all mourn her loss.

Mrs. Collins was the widow of the late Mr. Miller Collins, a brave confederate soldier. She was united in matrimony to Mr. Collins some time in the sixties. She lived in Pine Log nearly all her life.

She was a member of the Pine Log Methodist church and united herself to the Methodist church early in life and was a good and consistent member.

She is survived by three sons and one daughter, as follows: Messrs. Henry and James Collins, of this city, Mr. Wallace Collins, of Fort Worth, Texas, and Mrs. George Covington, of Pine Log. She is also survived by the following sisters: Mrs. Mary Wilkerson and Miss Susan Langford, of this city.

The remains were brought to the city Saturday morning at 11:30 o'clock and were interred at Oak Hill cemetery, the funeral services being held at the grave, Rev. C.A. Allday officiating.
