Mrs. Pace was born in Cleburne, had been a resident of Sweetwater since 1925 and was one of the pioneering families of Sweetwater.

She was a member of First Baptist Church, Golden Chords Choir, Keenagers, Southwest Cattlemens Association and the Chamber of Commerce.

Survivors include a son, Dr. James R. Pace of Sweetwater, Joy (Mrs. Bill) Pace Morehead of San Angelo; three sisters, Marie Humphrey of Bastrop, Farris Conley of New Braunfels and Margaret Rutledge of Abilene: seven grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.

Memorials may be made to Hospice of San Angelo or The West Texas Boys Ranch.

CAUSE OF DEATH WAS LIVER CANCER AND STROKE.
IN A DISCUSSION WITH COUSIN JOY ABOUT ELGIE I ASKED THE FOLLOWING QUESTION: JOY I DIDN'T KNOW ELGIE WENT WITH HER PASTOR FATHER TO SERVICES. I KNEW ELGIE PLAYED THE PIANO. DIDN'T YOU HAVE A PIANO WHEN YOU LIVED ON SILAS IN SWEETWATER? HER ANSWER WAS YES SHE DID GO TO HIS SERVICES AND LED THE MUSIC. Yes, we did always HAVE A PIANO IN OUR HOME. Mother played the piano in the Junior Department at the church probably for 40 or more years. She could really belt out those wonderful Baptist hymns.
