ARCADIA MILLS OFFICIAL, ABOUT TO BE MARRIED, TAKEN BY DEATH
Death ended a romance yesterday.
Several weeks ago Arthur Oneal Bennett, popular young Arcadia Mills official, and Miss. Noreen Moore of Cowpens, happily announced to the world that they were going to be married on Christmas Day. Congratulations poured in and the happy couple began preparation for their marriage. Both were sublimely happy and scores of people in the Arcadia and Cowpens sections rejoicing in the happiness of the young couple, had planned to attend the wedding ceremony.
But death stepped in.
On December 10th Mr. Bennett, suffering from poison from abcesses, was carried to a local hospital for treatment. And during the days that followed, although the physicians did all in thier power to combat the poison, his fiancee always by his bedside, he became weaker and weaker, until yesterday when, happy in the thought that his bride-to-be was with him, he passed on to his reward.
His sweetheart is heartbroken, as are his parents, Mr. & Mrs. V.A. Bennett of Arcadia.
Funeral services for the 26 year old will be held this afternoon at 2 o'clock at the Arcadia Baptist Church conducted by the Rev. A.J. Howard and assisted by the Rev. C.B. Prince. He will be buried in the suit he purchased for his marriage. Interment will follow at the Piedmont Churchyard near Chesnee.
He was the nephew of W.S. Moore, superintendant of Arcadia Mills. His death will be mourned by a large circle of friends in this community as well as the Arcadia section.
In addition to his parents, he is survived by two sisters, Miss Virgina Bennett of Arcadia and Mrs. Annie May Moore of Gaffney.
