"Mrs. Cockerill is Laid to Rest"

A very large number of relatives and friends filled the Hook Funeral Home Tuesday afternoon for the farewell services held for Mrs. Jacob Cockerill, member of one of the county's earliest families, who died at her home in this city Sunday.

Rev. A. K. Wilson, pastor of Grace Church, conducted the services, and in a tribute to Mrs. Cockerill, spoke of her long life and active work in the church.

Rev. Neil H. Peterson, of Good Hope M. E. Circuit, read the scriptures and offered prayer. He also read the hymn "I Would Not Live Always."

Carl Kwak played softly the violin solo "The Lord Is My Shepherd" with Miss Lorie King at the piano.

The floral gifts were many in number and exquisite beauty, being cared for by members of Miss Daisy Cokerill's class.

The women of Mrs. Ola Bayer's (?) class, of which Mrs. Cockerill was a member, attended the services in a body.

Interment was made in the Cochran Cemetery, located in the community in which Mrs. Cockerill had spent many years of her life.
