DEATH OF MRS. W. T. AKERS

The End Came at Family Residence Yesterday Morning

WAS AN ADMIRABLE WOMAN

Funeral Will Be Held from 517 North Boulevard at 11 o'clock This Morning


Mrs. Mary White Akers, wife of W. T. Akers,
died early yesterday morning after an illness of some weeks, at her late residence, 517 North Boulevard. The funeral will take place from the residence at 11 o'clock this morning, Rev. D. D. Landrum officiating.

The following gentlemen will act as pallbearers: C. J. Simmons, Colonel George Westmoreland, Dr. T. H. Peck, C. E. Caverly, J. F. Beck, and A. C. Briscoe.

Besides her husband, Mrs. Akers is survived by her mother, Mrs. Edward White, Sr.; two brothers, Edward White, Jr. and L. D. White; one sister, Mrs. James R. King [Anna]; and five stepchildren, John H. Akers, Gus Akers, Joe Akers, Mrs. Edward Goodloe, and Miss Laura Akers.

Mrs. Akers possessed a beautiful character and characteristics that endeared her to a wide circle of friends. Her hopeful and unselfish disposition, her zeal in good works, and her ardent piety as a Christian, together with her executive ability, made her a leader among good women of the community. Mrs. Akers was a member of the First Baptist Church and for years president of a large church society known as the Social Union. Her death comes as a real blow to those who enjoyed her friendship, and the bereaved members of her family have the heartfelt sympathy of the community.
