Good Friday Burial Wish Is Fulfilled

Summerville, March 27

Special:
The death of Miss Eliza Smith Miles here Thursday
made possible the fulfillment of her wish that she be buried
on Good Friday. She was in her eighty-fourth year.

A second wish that she be interred in her vestment--she had served in the Episcopal choir since she was seventeen--was fulfilled.

Funeral services at St. Paul,s church were in charge of the Rev. S. W. Ambler, pastor. Interment was in the church yard.
