Leila A Hooper Pittman
Birth: Dec. 3, 1870
Cobb County
Georgia, USA
Death: Aug. 10, 1900
Austell
Cobb County
Georgia, USA

The following piece appeared in the Marietta Journal (Marietta, Georgia) on Thursday, August 30, 1900:

IN MEMORIAM.

"How peaceful and how powerful is the grave."

We are reminded of the truth of the above by a melancholy event that occurred in Austell, Cobb county, Ga., Aug. 10, 1900. I refer to the death of Mrs. Leila Hooper Pittman.

Death is sad in the old, but it seems doubly so when the young are called away.

Mrs. Leila Hooper Pittman was born and reared to young womanhood near Mableton, Cobb county, Ga., and was the daughter of Elder and Mrs. T. M. Hooper. Here in a quiet country home, surrounded by fond parents, loving brothers and sisters, she passed most of her life, a favorite with all who knew her. At school, church and social meetings she was a welcome visitor.

In 1887 she joined the Christian church and remained a faithful member as long as she lived.

In 1892 she married Mr. Isaac M. Pittman, of Austell. She left the parental roof to bless the heart and life of the one she had chosen for a companion. Of this union five children were born, of which four survive.

As a wife she was faithful, as a mother loving and kind, as a Christian true, as a neighbor obliging.

Kind friend, farewell! On the great Resurrection morn may we meet you and other loved ones who have gone on before, in a brighter, happier world above.

F. D. N.
Atlanta, Aug. 27, 1900
