Sympathizing friends assembled at the chapel of the Carl G. Palm mortuary Monday afternoon at 2 to pay honor to the memory of Noah Houston Greer, who passed away Friday afternoon in San Diego. Rev. Ernest Nichols, pastor of First Baptist church, officiated with a comforting message to the bereaved. Mrs. Stanley Lockwood sang two favorite selections entitled "Nearer My God To Thee" and "Jesus Lover of My Soul". She was accompanied by Mrs. Helen Thatcher Stoddard.
