OBITUARY- Times Post, Houston, MS Jan. 18, 1945
Funeral services were held Monday afternoon at 2:30 pm from Young's Chapel at Elzey for Mrs. Sarah Frances Blue, who died Sumday am, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. C. J. Chandler after an illness of a few weeks. She was 93. The Rev. L. O. Elliott, the pastor, officiated.
Mrs. Blue was a native of Calhoun County and had spent practically her entire life in the same vicinity. Her husband, M. J. Blue, died 32 years ago and a number of years later she moved to Algoma to make her home with one of her daughters, Mrs. J. W. Winter. Shortly before Christmas she came to visit Mrs. Chandler.
She was active in her church work until her age prevented, and even during the last weeks of her life she was vitally interested in the activities and paying "her pastor". She had been a member of Young's since 1874.
Besides these two daughters, she leaves another daughter, Mrs. J. J. Hiller of Calhoun City and three sons, Dr. R. S. Blue of Houston, W. W. Blue and D. D. Blue of Vardaman; over 30 grandchildren, several great grandchildren also survive. Five of her grandsons are serving overseas.
Serving as pallbearers were grandson, Rex Blue, Paul Blue, Bill Blue, Travis Blue, Reginald Chadler, Creston Carter and Wayne Cook.
