Death of Mrs. Edwards
Burial in Sunset Cemetery Thursday Afternoon
Mrs. Lovenia Goins Edwards, aged 77 years, died suddenly at her home in North Clinton, Tuesday evening shortly after five o’clock.
A few minutes before death she was active about the house in domestic duties. A neighbor called as was her custom for some milk and found the aged lady in seeming good health though complaining of feeling weak. A short time after death occurred. Deceased had carefully prepared the dining table for the evening meal when she was stricken.
Deceased was the wife of the late Wm. Edwards and had been living in Clinton eighteen years. She was a devout member of the Baptist Church and took a deep interest in the welfare of the church. She leaves to mourn her loss a daughter Mrs. Emma Hurst of Chattanooga, a son Wm. Edwards of this city; and a large number of near relatives in Anderson County.
The funeral services were held at the residence Thursday afternoon at 2:30 o’clock conducted by Rev. E. N. Woodward, pastor of the M. E. Church, South.
Following service at the house the remains were conveyed to Sunset cemetery for burial, and laid to rest in the presence of a large gathering of relatives and friends.
