Mrs. Frank BELL Passes Away.

     Mrs. Lillian Cobbs BELL, wife of Frank BELL, well known business man of this city, died at her home on Garner Avenue Friday morning.  Mrs. BELL was born and reared in this city and was the daughter of Mrs. Emma Baird COBBS and the late Louis T. COBBS, in his day a leading member of the local bar.  She was educated at Price's College for Young Ladies, Nashville, was a woman of culture, many fine traits of character and before her health failed was active in home, social and church circles.   While she had been ill for several years yet it was not known that she was critically ill and her death was a shock to the many friends and acquaintances of her family.  Funeral services were held Saturday morning at Elmwood cemetery with Mrs. Anna Mary Elliott, First Reader, of the Second Church of Christian Science, Nashville, in charge.
Mrs. BELL was a member of the Mother Church, the First Church of Christian Science, Boston, Mass.
