Her maiden name was Barlow. She professed religion several years ago and joined the church at Walker's Chapel, of which she lived a consistent member until last year, when she moved her membership to McClain's Chapel. She lived an exemplary Christian life. She was a good step-mother, strong in her convictions for right, faithful to her friends until God saw fit to take her home. We should all try to live so that when we are called to go we can hear the Master say to us, as we believe he had said to her "Well done, thou good and faithful servant; enter thou in the joys of thy Lord." Funeral services were conducted by Rev. T. J. Simmons at Walker's Chapel, Monday, June 15, 1914.
