Death of Mrs. Elizabeth Venable.

Mrs. Elizabeth Venable died at her home at Folsom on Sunday morning last after a brief illness of less than forty-eight hours. She was a Christian woman, and held in high esteem by all who knew her. She was a consistent member of the Methodist church at Oxford, Ga., where she resided for the past two years for the purpose of educating her only son Gus Foute Venable, but owing to the failure of his eyes he was compelled to quit school and secured a position as a teacher at Folsom, his mother moving to that place with him. Mrs. Venable formerly lived near Adairsville where she lost her husband in 1884. She was sixty-seven years old at the time of her death.

Mrs. Venable was a sister of Major A. M. Foute, of this city, Judge W. E. Foute, of Atlanta, and Mrs. Kate Watt, of Tennessee.

Her highest ambition was to see her son complete his education and enter ministry for which he was becoming prepared. The remains were laid to rest in the beautiful Eastview cemetery at Adairsville on Monday evening, and Major Foute went up to attend the funeral.
