Death of Mrs. Geo. O. Conrad

Mrs. George O. Conrad died at an early hour last Sunday morning after a protracting illness. She had been in failing health for several years and usually spent the winters in Florida. She returned home last spring without having derived the usual benefit from her sojourn in the South, and since that time her illness had been of an intensely painful nature. Her comfort was for months the absorbing thought of a devoted household and the object of almost hourly solicitude in a large circle of equally devoted friends. The untimely death of her son-in-law, John L. Logan, several weeks ago, carried with it a shock from which she never rallied, and all during last week her death was hourly expected.
Funeral services were held Monday afternoon at the family residence, conducted by Rev. J.A. Anderson, assisted by Rev. Dr. J. Hoffman Waugh, of the Methodist church. They were largely attended by relatives and friends of the deceased. The remains were afterwards laid at rest in Woodbine Cemetery and the mound which marked their resting place was heaped with the exquisite floral offerings of loving friends and church and charitable organizations, of which the deceased, while in health, had been a most active member. The pallbearers were Judge John T. Harris, Dr. J. H. Neff, James L. Avis, Jos. S. Moffett, William Dean, J.S. Messerley, G.M. Effinger and Col. D. H. Lee Martz.
Mrs. Conrad was a member of a well known and influential Rockingham family. She was a daughter of the late Col. Wm. B. Yancy and was born Sept. 15, 1831. She married Mr. George O. Conrad in 1850, and, with the exception of several years during the war, she had resided in Harrisonburg since the date of her marriage. She joined the Methodist church in 1848, and exemplied her Christian faith not only by marked devotion to her church and its services, but by a life of self-sacraficing service amoung the unfortunate and the distressed, which endeared her to all classes and conditions of the community, and which brought her death home in the sense of a personal bereavement to many outside the family circle. Her husband and five children survive her. They are Mr. Thos. W Conrad of Jacksonville, Florida, Ed. S. and George N. Conrad, Mrs. Dr. T. O. Jones, Mrs. Bettie M. Logan, and Miss Mary L. Conrad, of Harrisonburg.
