Death of Mrs. Lucinda Clemons
Mrs. Lucinda Clemons died at her home in this city Saturday evening, the 13th of June; from the infirmities of old age. The funeral was held from the residence, Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock, being conducted by Elder E. O. Mallory. After which the remains were buried in the Memphis Cemetery.
The following brief account of the life of deceased was handed us by Elder Mallory:
Lucinda Lovell was born in Kentucky Feb. 22, 1822, married to Stewart Justice in 1837. Four children were born to this union. Mr. Justice having died she was married in 1847 to James H. Clemons of this city. Of this union nine children were born. Two died in childhood, the remainder grew to manhood and womanhood here. Her husband died in 1897. Of her children David Justice, Nancy Ralph, Rachael Blake and Susan Sanford, live in this city. The others have made homes elsewhere.
The last few years of Sister Clemons' life were very lonely, as she had lost her sight and hearing. And on the evening of the 13th she passed quietly away at the advanced age of 86 yrs., 3 months and 21 days. In early life she united with the M. E. Church South, and continued in that fellowship to the end. May we not hope she has entered into rest?
