Obituary of Mrs. Thos. Hurley, Jr.
On Friday night, March 10, the death angel visited the home of Thos. Hurley, Jr., and claimed as its victim his loving companion. Mrs. Hurley was admired by all who knew her. She was a devoted member of the Christian church and had lived an ideal Christian life ever since she professed faith in Christ. She leaves a father and mother, two brothers, a loving husband and six little children to mourn her loss. Her remains were laid to rest in White Oak cemetery Sunday at 2:30 with Rev. Arch Houston conducting the funeral service. May her friends and relatives be consoled by the expectation of striking hands with her in realms where parting is unknown, is the sincere wishes of a FRIEND.

Her husband was badly burned in trying to rescue his wife, but he is not dangerously hurt. A great stir in the neighborhood was caused by the frightful accident.
