Passed Away at 5:30 o'clock Last Friday Evening

Mrs. Nannie Baze, wife of Leslie M. Baze, died at 5:30 o'clock last Friday evening, after an illness of many months.

Funeral services were held at 11 o'clock a.m. Sunday from the M. E. church, conducted by Rev. J. K. Speer. In spite of the cold weather the church was filled with friends of the deceased. The remains were taken to Balltown cemetery for burial.

Nannie Bell Dryden was born November 17, 1871, on the farm where she died. She was united in marriage with Leslie M. Baze October 9, 1888. To this union five children were born, four of whom survive her. Besides a husband she leaves one sister--Mrs. E. E. Rhea. Her father, mother, four sisters and four brothers preceded her to the grave.

Deceased united with the M. E. church at Old Metz in 1887 and was ever regarded as one of the most faithful christians of the congregations.

Mrs. Nannie Baze was one of the best of women, a dutiful wife and kind and loving mother. Born and reared up in this community, she knew almost everyone, and was loved by hosts of friends.

A good woman has gone to her reward.
