Elmira Copeland Bennett
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Aug. 7, 1863
Death: Jul. 1, 1917

Eastman, Miss., July 10--(Special) Mrs. Elmira Bennett died Sunday night at 9:50 p.m., July 1, 1917, after a lingering illness caused from a complication of chronic diseases, her vital forces gradually giving away. She was surrounded by her entire family, including many friends and neighbors, apparently retaining full consciousness and clear mind to the last moment.

Mrs. Bennett was one of Itawamba's lovable women, where she was reared, for she was loved and admired by all who knew her, a true and kind wife, a devoted daughter, an amiable and sweet tempered sister, a liberal and accommodating neighbor.

Mrs. Bennett was the daughter of the late Dr. Thomas E. Copeland, who died about 20 years ago, and is survived by her husband, Robert Bruce Bennett; her mother, Mrs. Alice Copeland; one sister Gertrude Clements; and three brothers, Drs. Oscar, James and Alcanda Copeland.

Funeral service were held at Salem church in Itawamba County Mississippi, about 10 miles east of Red Bay, at noon, Tuesday, July 3, Rev. A.H. Cole and Frank Baker officiating.

A large crowd was in attendance attesting their sympathy.
