Mrs.Birdwell was a dutiful wife and loving,tender mother.She was a splendid neighbor,and those who knew her best speak highly of her kind and neighborly deeds.Many friends deeply regret her passing.

She is survived by her husband and five sons,W.C. Birdwell of Pecos,Texas;Harvey,Hughy,Gordon and Newell Lee,the latter probably better known to his friends as "Dink" Birdwell.Three daughters preceded their mother in death.
