Obituary
Mrs. Rachel J. G. Thompson

Mrs. Rachel J. Garvin Thompson, age 63 years, wife of W. A. Thompson, died at her home at Peebles yesterday afternoon of cancer. Her long illness was marked by patience and endurance. Never complaining and always ready to greet her friends with a smile, she was a good woman and the announcement of her death comes as a severe shock to relatives and friends.

Mrs. Thompson was a member of the Christian Union Church at Otway and in her girlhood days and during her residence at Otway, was an active church worker. She is survived by her husband one son Charles and granddaughter Aubrey; a niece, Mrs. Olive Garvin Moore, whom Mr. and Mrs. Thompson had so kindly cared for from childhood until her marriage to Mr. Moore some five years ago. Other surviving relatives are three brothers, Samuel Garvin of Orlando, Florida; William of Columbus and Albert, of Otway. Funeral services will be held from the late home Sunday afternoon at two o'clock by Rev. George Hazlewood, after which the remains will be laid to rest in the Locust Grove Cemetery.
