Accidental Shot Fatal to Young Sparta Matron
Christmas, 1938, found a vacant place in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Dolph Montgomery, for ten days before their only daughter, Mary Ethel, had died from the accidental firing of a pistol in the hands of her husband, Mr. R L Kilgore.
For twenty-two years she had brought joy to the home and to friends who loved her for her sweet, unselfish nature. To the Baptist Church at Sparta, since girlhood, she had given of her time and talents, serving as a teacher or officer.
In the school at woodland, from which she was graduated several years ago, she was an also an inspiration. Immediately following her graduation she was married. She and her husband had recently moved into a cottage of their own. They were, however, in the home of her mother and stepfather when the accident occurred.
The large attendance at her funeral at Amity the following day and the many floral offerings were other manifestations of the love in which she was held.
In addition to Mr. and Mrs. Montgomery and her husband, she leaves two brothers, Randolph and Ralph, and two aunts, Mrs. R O Scott of Mantee; and Mrs. O L Crosthwaite of Drew.
