The Gloucester Gazette
Thurs, Feb 5, 1931
p.4, c.4

Miss Nannie Heywood, who fell asleep in Jesus (January) 20, 1931, in Richmond, after a short sickness, was the daughter of Mr. Robert Franklin Heywood, Sr., one of Gloucester's most popular and useful citizens, and his estimable wife. The father was born and lived near Bena, was a Confederate veteran, and after the war a county officer for a number of years.

Miss Nannie united with the Union Baptist Church with her parents, but carried her letter of membership to Richmond (in) 1929. The large crowd gathered at her funeral, which was held in the old family home, attested to her popularity. She leaves her brother, Robert F. Heywood, Jr., and a sister, Mrs. Goodwin, of Clifton Forge, to mourn their loss, besides a large number of other relatives.

A former paster, Rev. R. A. Folkes, and two friends of the family, Rev. H. L. Corr and Rev. Mr. Moore, of the Methodist Church, conducted the services. The floral offerings were beautiful. The active pallbearers were R. C. Heywood, J. E. Pointer, R. A. Sutton, W. T. Ashe, R. R. Thruston, J. E. Hogge, P. W. Hall and W. C. Brown.

The honorary pallbearers were J. L. Thornton, W. C. Stubbs, Jr., J. R. Newcomb, Jr., W. B. Sutton, W. D. H. Diggs, Lloyd Ward, M. Heywood, E. K. Hogge, Hannibal Rowe, J. A. Burton, S. J. Smith, E. A. Segar and R. T. Bland.

We hope to meet you beyond the river, in the sweet bye and bye.

~ R. A. Folkes
