Aunt Bettie Bridges Dies At Eighty-Two

End came Sunday afternoon to splendid lady near Maple Grove. Widow of Starkie Bridges and is survived by five children.

Mrs. Elizabeth Bridges, a highly respected old lady living near Maple Grove on Beachy Fork Creek, died Monday afternoon about four o'clock of infirmities due mainly to declining years. She had been very feeble for some time, and her death had been hourly expected for some days before the end came.

She was born January 1st, 1844, in Trigg County and was a daughter of Alfred Lawrence, long deceased, she being eighty-two years of age last January. She was united in marriage to S.T. Bridges back in the sisties, being his second wife, and was the mother of eight children.

She united with Donaldson Baptist Church many years ago, and remained a faithful member until her death. She was a very kind and good old lady and had many friends, and the deeds of loving kindness and thoughtfulness she delighted in on earth will greatly be missed in the neighborhood where she had so long resided.

Burial took place Tuesday afternoon at three o'clock at the Drew Bridges grave yard near her home.
