Margaret J (Garrison) Smith
Oct. 5, 1912 (Newspaper clipping)
Our community was greatly shocked Tuesday morning, Oct 1, to learn of the death of Mrs. Margaret J. Smith, wife of Esq. W.D. Smith. She was apparently in good healt and arose early Tuesday morning and assisted in preparing breakfast for her family, but hardly had they finished the meal when Mrs. Smith complained of a severe headache and a few moments later was stricken with appoplexy and died before medical aid could be summoned. Mrs. Smith was 43 years of age and had been a member of the Baptist church about 27 years. She was a devout chirstian, a kind neighbor, and a devoted and affectionate wife and mother. A husband, six children, an aged mother and several brothers and sisters survive her, all of whom will miss her gentle ministering hand and wise counceil, but the sweet influence of her noble christian life will still linger with the, bidding them to come up higher. Mrs. Smith's character was woven of graces, which, like jewels of rare worth, lent a luster to her life. Rev. W.T. West conducted the funeral services at 10 a.m. Wednesday, at the Newport Cemetery; then surrounded by a large crowd of those who knew and loved her, all that was mortal of this good woman was tenderly laid to rest.
