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.
