HEART FAILURE CLAIMS LIFE OF MRS. BOLLING
Prominent Tuscaloosa Woman Retires In Good Health; Dies During Night
Heart failure, which has caused the sudden passing of several prominent Tuscaloosa citizens within the last four days, claimed an additional victim this morning at 4:30 o'clock when Mrs. Ellen Callier Bolling, 70, died suddenly at her home, 523 Thirteenth Street. She had retired at 9:00 o'clock apparently in good health, but during the night she suffered a heart attack and succumbed after a brief period of intense pain. Mrs. Bolling visited downtown to shop Wednesday afternoon.
Funeral services will be held Friday at 10 a.m. at the home, Foster in charge. Dr. Joseph P. Boone of the First Baptist Church will officiate. Mrs. Bolling had been a member of that church since coming to Tuscaloosa 14 years ago.
She was the widow of Nathaniel Preston Bolling whom she married in 1882, after graduating from Marion Female Seminary. Mrs. Bolling was born in Jackson, Ala., 1860, the daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Armistead Callier.
She is survived by two sisters: Mrs. O. T. Grimes and Mrs. Annie S. Pearson of Tuscaloosa; four half-sisters, Mrs. H. T. Brown of Elkin, N.C.; Mrs. J. R. Threadgill of Talladega, and Miss Mary Callier of Tuscaloosa; and four children, Mrs. Graham McDonald of Tuscaloosa; N. P. Bolling of Tuscaloosa County; Armistead Bolling of Centreville; and Mrs. H. G. Cleveland of Birmingham. Another daughter, Miss Burchett Bolling, was killed in an auto-train collision near here several years ago. Several others were victims of that crash.
