Death of Mrs. T. H. Lillie
A death attended with many a sad feature occurred in our village on Friday morning last, that of Mrs. Truman H, Lillie, after a severe illness of several weeks duration.
Mrs. Lillie was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. E. JAQUES of Charlotte, and sister Mrs. G. W. WATRONs of this place, and was married to Mr. Lillie in October 1884. She was twenty two years of age and leaves with a sadly bereaved husband a very bright little child of two years. The funeral ceremonies took place at the family residence on Sunday afternoon last, with Rev. D. CRONK as officiating clergyman.
A large assembly of friends and sympathizing citizens gathered at the solemn obsequies, and by sad countenances and tearful eyes, manifested their deep sympathy for the bereaved husband, child and friends in a loss that but few indeed can realize who have not been placed in a similar sad and trying position.
The floral tributes of relatives and friends were exceedingly fine, exhibiting forcibly the great regard in which Mrs. Lillie was held by them and the community, and an appreciation of her many beautiful traits of character as a woman, friend, wife and mother.
