Marshall of the Baptist church officiating.
Mrs.Sronce was the only daughter of Mr. and Mrs.Tom Obenchain (deceased) and was born and raised in Covington Tennessee.She was also a niece of the late Mrs.Frannie Montgomery of this city.
On May 4th,1893 she was married to Mr.Charles E. Sronce of this city.She possessed a lovely character,a sweet gentle manner and was a most faithful devoted wife and mother and had a host of sincere friends.
During her life she often told friends of an incident most vivid in her memory as a child,when she was baptized in a river in Tennessee on a beautiful quiet moonlight night,how the mocking birds hovered around singing most sweetly.Strange and most pathetic it seems that the sames thing occurred during the burial services--the mocking birds sang their sweetest--each seemingly trying to sing sweeter than the other over her last resting place.
Besides her husband she is survived by an only child,Lieut.Charles Elmo Sronce,who is stationed at Camp Meade,Md. A cousin Leland S. Montgomery of Houston and an aunt,Mrs.R.S. Rockwood of Wharton attended the funeral.The pall bearers were:Mssrs.Frank Auerbach,Jr.,Joseph W. Stafford,Howard Townsend,W.S. Miller,Alex McCormich and W.M. Paulsen.A Friend.
