A BEAUTIFUL LIFE ENDED BY DEATH

MRS. ARLIE LOVE PASSED AWAY LAST WEDNESDAY, AFTER LONG ILLNESS

The death of Mrs. Arlie Love occurred last week Wednesday after a lingering illness during which she was cheerful and uncomplaining. She had been in very poor health for several years and in spite of everything that could be done for her, she gradually failed until the end came.

The funeral services were held Saturday morning, June 4th at 10 o'clock at the Methodist church under the direction of the pastor, Rev. H. C. Brown, and interment made in the Tampico Cemetery.

Appropriate hymns were rendered by Mrs. F. A. Brewer and Mr. Homer Turner, Mrs. Neva Denison accompanist and Messers R. E. McKenzie, L. E. Smith, Clinton Brooks, Glen Brooks, James Arnold and Jesse Arnold acted as pallbearers.

A large number of relatives and friends were in attendance to pay the last tribute of affection to one whom they had always loved and esteemed, and many beautiful floral offerings were evidence of the universal esteem in which she was held.

Rev. Brown preached a beautiful and comforting sermon from the text "The Shepherd's Palm", a favorite reading of the deceased and which is a comfort to all the times of trials.
