Sadness permeated the stillness of the Caldwell home and pierced grief stricken hearts when the spirit of Mrs. Chas. Caldwell was ushered into the Great Beyond on last Sunday afternoon just a short while after the noon hour.

Mrs. Caldwell had been ill only eight days when the end came. She had contracted measles and a complication had set up, with which medicol [sic medical] science fought in vain.

Mrs. Caldwell came to Winnsboro last October with her husband, who is manager of the Gulf Refining Company of this city. Both of these fine people have established themselves in the hearts of everybody here. Mrs. Caldwell was a staunch member of the Winnsboro Baptist church and an exceedingly faithful worker. The silence to the call of her name on the roll of the Order of the Eastern Star here saddens the hearts of her co-workers.

Interment was made in the Grayson cemetery at Grayson, La., where Mrs. Caldwell was well known and loved very much, having taught school there for several years, prior to her coming to Winnsboro. Rev. Dana Terry, pastor of the local Baptist church officiated at the funeral services while the O.E.S. conducted the last rites.

Mrs. Caldwell is survived by her husband, her father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. Edwards, of Shreveport, two brothers, one sister and host of other relatives and friends.
