SAD PASSING OF MRS. LAMAR PURVIS
This community was shocked Wednesday to learn of the sudden death of Mrs. Lamar (Mary Lizzie Caldwell) Purvis, which occurred at her home in Lyons. Mrs. Purvis took blood poison from having a tooth extracted. Mrs. Purvis was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. S. J. Caldwell, of this county. She was loved by all who knew her here and in her adopted home in Lyons. Her untimely death brings sorrow to her scores of friends and relatives.
She is survived by her husband, Lamar Purvis, four children, Sara Ellen, Bobby, Charles and Norma Claire, the latter six months old; one brother, Clady Caldwell, Jacksonville, Georgia; three sisters, Mrs. Julian White, Alamo; Mrs. Marvin Hatfield, Mrs. M.L. Clements, Jacksonville, Georgia; father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. S. J. Caldwell.
Funeral services were conducted from the Alamo Methodist Church yesterday afternoon, conducted by Rev. Shaw, pastor of Lyons Methodist Church, assisted by Rev. C. A. Morrison, of Alamo Methodist Church and Rev. H. L. Avery, of McRae.
