Mrs Bessie Barnes Passes Away at Home in North

North, Nov 18 [1918] -- On Saturday, November 9, John Barnes was laid to rest in the cemetery at Pin Branch [Penn Branch Cemetery], having died of influenza, and one week later, his young wife, who was Miss Bessie Livingstone, followed him to the great beyond. Mrs Barnes was laid to rest beside her husband in the presence of a large number of friends who mourned the death of one of the community's brightest and best women and a devoted church worker.
Mrs Barnes is survived by her father and mother, Mr and Mrs O K Livingstone, Sr, Cecil Livingstone, Margaret and Leroy Livingstone. She was a teacher last year in the North graded school and was loved by all her pupils. She will be greatly missed at the Methodist Church where she was one of the most devoted members. Being a splendid singer and organist, she added much to the services of the church. She was also a devoted worker int he missionary endeavors of the church. The funeral services were conducted by her pastor, the Rev C B Burns.
