Lovable Lady Passes into the Great Beyond After Long Illness of Complications Thursday afternoon of last week Miss Margaret Harding passed away at her home in this city. She had been a sufferer of chronic heart trouble for some time, and during her last illness pneumonia developed which hastened the end. Deceased was 62 years of age and was a daughter of the late Abraham Harding Sr. She had been a devout member of the Baptist Church for many years and was a noble Christian lady. She was a gentle woman sympathetic and kind, and true to every obligation in life. These beautiful traits of character made her a most lovable and useful woman. The funeral services were held at the Baptist Church Saturday afternoon at 1 o'clock, which was preached by Rev. J. S. Gatton of Glendale, a former pastor of the church here, and the interment took place at the old Harding cemetery near town. Deceased is survived by two sisters and three brothers.
