Tubbs, pastor of the Baptist church of this city of which she had been for many years a member, assisted by Rev. A. E. Henry, pastor of the Methodist church. A number of relatives and friends were in attendance at the final services and a number of beautiful flowers which covered the casket bore testimony to the esteem in which Mrs. Bennett had been held.
The funeral sermon was given by Mr. Tubbs, who gave a very helpful and comforting discourse in which he emphasized the joy and triumph of the redeemed and the victory over death for all who die in the Lord.
