G.S. Wooding Passes Away after Stroke
Succumbed Sunday Morning: Funeral at 3 P.M Today

Garland Stone Wooding, one of Danville's older citizens, died on Sunday morning at Memorial hospital as result of a paralytic stroke, in his sixty-ninth year. His condition during the past two days had been precarious and so critical on Saturday that members of his immediate family remained at his bedside and were with him at the end. Late in November he was suffering from pronounced heart weakness and remained for six weeks in the hospital. Then he went to his home on Pine Street where last Tuesday he suffered a stroke and he was taken back to the hospital where he gradually grew worse passing away at 8:30 a.m. yesterday.
The funeral service will be held this afternoon at three o'clock and will be conducted at the home of his half-brother, Mayor Harry Wooding on Holbrook avenue, by Rev. Joseph Dunglison, D.D. pastor of the First Presbyterian church. Interment will be made in the family square in Green Hill cemetery.
During recent years Mr. Wooding had been a traveling salesman and his returning visits were periodic but throughout his life he always regarded Danville as his home maintaining the early life ties of kinship and friendship.
He was born at the old family residence on Wilson street on April 16th, 1864, being a son of Colonel William Henry Wooding and Mrs Jane Augusta Garland Wooding pioneer families in this city. During most of his life in Danville he was engaged in the tobacco business abandoning it to take over a large southern sales territory, in which he spent most of his time until illness brought him home for treatment.
He was married to Miss Annie Cabell, a daughter of Col. George C. Cabell, one of Virginia's famous barristers, and he enjoyed a wide friendship, he being known as typical of the old school of citizenship and a man of broad courtesy and southern traditions. His church affiliation was with the the First Presbyterian of this city, where he maintained it through the latter years that he had been away.
Surviving him is his widow, also two children. Mrs. Mary Cabell Schoolfield and William Henry Wooding, both of Washington. He also leaves four grandchildren, a half brother, Mayor Wooding, and a half sister, Mrs. J.E. Hobson, now a resident of Oklahoma.
