Child Dies Following Illness With Typhoid
Mary Elizabeth PRINCE, 10, Passes Into Eternity; Funeral Service at Camp Ground on Swan
Mary Elizabeth PRINCE, 10 years of age, died at the home of her parents Mr. and Mrs. Joe T. PRINCE on Piney, last Thursday evening between six and seven o'clock. A two weeks illness with typhoid fever had failed to yield to treatment, and the lovely child quietly slipped into eternity.
The remains were carried to Camp Ground church on Swan near the ancestral Prince home, and interment followed a funeral service by Rev. J. E. Trotter, pastor of the Methodist church at Nunnelly. Surviving are the parents; four sisters, Mrs. Clarence BATES of Centreville, and Misses Edith, Imo and Annie PRINCE of the home; and twin brothers, Edwin and Edward PRINCE, also of the home.
The beloved girl was attractive and unusually bright as a student at the Hickman Hollow elementary school, taught by Miss Emma NICKS. She was possessed of a sunny disposition, a winsome personality and to know her was to love her.
