MRS EMMA BARWICK DIED YESTERDAY
After Continued and Tedious Illness She Passed Calmly To the Beyond
Yesterday (4-18-1910) morning, about the time of the breaking of the day, Mrs. Emma Barwick, of this city, peacefully passed from the shadows of this world of suffering to the ever living day of a better world.
She had been ill for many weeks and at her age, more than three score years, skill and care seemed of no avail to restore her to health.
In passing away one of the most conscientious Christians, one of the most devoted and loyal friends, went from earth to heaven.
She is survived by the following children: Mr John A Barwick, of Atlanta; Mr Joe N Barwick, of Americus; Mr Howell C Barwick, of Americus; Mr Thomas E Barwick, of Pittsburgh, PA; Misses Mary E and Clara E Barwick, of this city, and Mr. William S Barwick, of Athens. Three sisters also survive her: Mrs H A Countryman, Mrs. R A Beacham and Mrs W A Seales, of Americus. She was a daughter of Mr J A Blackshear of Americus - a member of one of the most prominent families of the state. Her father survives her, being now in his 91st year.
Mrs Barwick was reared in Sumter co, but the greater portion of her life was spent in this city. She became an active Christian worker in early childhood and for many years has been a consistent member of the First United Methodist Church of Athens.
