Obituary: The Pulaski (TN) Citizen 24 Jan 1934.
It was with sad hearts we heard last Friday afternoon that Mrs. Colston Abernathy and her infant son had passed away at the Pulaski Hospital. All that skilled hands and loving hearts could do could not stay the hand of death. Mrs. Abernathy was truly a lovable character, a devoted wife, an affectionate mother, a kind neighbor.
Mrs. Abernathy was formerly Miss Blanche Stephens of Princeton, Ky. In early life she joined the Baptist Church of which she has been a faithful member. Twenty-one years ago she was married to Mr. Abernathy. She is survived by her husband and the following children: Kathleen, Martha, Colston, Dudley, Georgia, Ann, Moulton, Alex, Virginia and Nancy. She is also survived by her mother Mrs. Martha Stephens, one sister, Mrs. J.L. Vinson, five brothers, Hershel, J. D., Sam and Rice, all of Princeton and Wendell Stephens of Florida. Two half-brothers, John and George Stephens of Princeton also survive.
Funeral services were conducted at the residence Sunday afternoon by Rev. C.E. Patch of the Baptist Church at Pulaski, followed by interment at Maplewood.
Those who came from a distance were J. D., Sam, Hershel, John and George Stephens and Mr. and Mrs. J.T. Vinson all of Princeton, Miss. Corrine Townsend, Mr. and Mrs. L.T. Webster and her sister, and James Webster all of Evansville, Ind., Mr. and Mrs. Flecher Abernathy, Misses Eleanor and Grace Abernathy of Columbia.
Mr. Abernathy and family the sister and brothers express deep appreciation for all the tender words and acts of kindness extended to them in this time of deep sorrow.
