Death Claims Mrs. G. C. Amberson On June First

Many of the older citizens of London were made sad on June 1, when the news of the death of Mrs. G. C. Amberson of San Antonio reached relatives and friends. Mrs. Amberson, better known in Kimble county as Aunt Lizzie Amberson, was the widow of the late Jim Amberson, Sr. She lived for many years on the farm where she and her husband reared their family of six children--four sons and two daughters. The husband met a sudden death many years ago in a thunder storm.

After Mr. Amberson's death the family moved to San Antonio around 1912, where Mrs. Amberson lived until her death.
She was born in Lavaca county 73 years ago, but moved to Kimble county with her grandfather, George Walton and Uncle Lou Walton, when a small child, and made her home with them until her marriage with James "Jim" Amberson.

When a young woman she united with the Church of Christ and lived an exemplary Christian life. She was also a member of the Woodmen Circle and of the Order of the Eastern Star.

Although she made her home in San Antonio, she never forgot her London friends and visited them at least once a year as long as she was able to make the trip. The large crowd present at the funeral services on June 2, and the beautiful floral offering attested the love and esteem in which she was held by London friends.

Interment was made in the Little Saline Cemetery by the side of her husband. Mrs. Amberson was a good woman and has been called from this strife torn world to a place of peace and rest at His own right hand. Friends extend to the children and other relatives heartfelt sympathy in this sad bereavement, and say to them, look higher and cast your burden at His feet.
