|Miss Carrie Lilly Williams |
Miss Carrie Lilly Williams died at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Freeman B. Williams on Friday morning, May 6th, after a long and painful illness, aged 15 years and 7 months. The funeral took place Sunday afternoon and was largely attended. The death of Carrie cast a pall of sorrow over our entire community. She was an exceedingly bright girl and possessed many beautiful traits of character beloved by all who knew her. Although frail in body she had a happy disposition, never complaining of her own affliction but always sympathetic and solicitous of others. Carrie was a devout Christian and accepted with resignation all the suffering she was compelled to endure and with remarkable calmness and resignation awaited the coming of death's angel, trusting in the precious promise, "I will not leave thee nor forsake thee." To the stricken father and mother we extend our sympathy.
