From The Robesonian, Lumberton, N. C., Mon., 13 July 1931 - Mrs. Joe B. Smith Found Dead In Bed Early Friday A. M. - A good Woman Passes - By J. M. Fleming.
Mrs. Joe B. Smith died at home in the Barker-Ten-Mile section early Friday morning. She was found dead in bed by members of the family when they awaked from their night's rest. She was 45 years old.
Funeral services were held from the home at 10 a. m. Saturday, conducted by the writer, who was her pastor, she being a member of the church at Smyrna, assisted by Rev. Mr. J. B. Thompson of St. Pauls, and interment was made in Meadowbrook cemetery in the presence of a large concourse of sympathizing and sorrowing friends and relatives.
Pallbearers were Messrs. D. T. Kinlaw, P. S. Kornegay, Purvis Powers, J. H. Powers Jr., Theodore and H. A. McWhite. Flowers, which were profuse and beautiful, were placed by Madams D. B. Oliver, Beady Rowan and Cal White, Misses Virgie, Anges and Allene M'White, Bessie Kinlaw, Sadie Russ, Bernice Smith. "Safe in the Arms of Jesus" and "Abide With Me", led by Mrs. D. B. Oliver, were sung at the home, and "Shall We Gather at the River?" was rendered by the same voices at the grave.
Mrs. Smith was Miss Haddie Cox of the Smyrna section before her marriage to Mr. Joe B. Smith 13 years ago. As a girl she was a model of excellence; as a young woman, she was a gem; as a wife and mother, earth possessed no better. She was patient, kind and good, and had as her own those splendid qualities that always make up sterling Christian character. She loved the Lord and her church, and was devoted to her home and community. I knew her for a goodly number of years and never heard the first word of criticism about her good name.
To mourn her going, besides the husband and daughter, Miss Ruby, there are 3 brothers - Messrs. Tom and Dave, R. 4 from Lumberton; and Dock, R. 5; and two sisters, Madams Frank Lamb, R. 2, Fairmont, and Clarence Lamb, Clarkton; two step-daughters, Madams William Taylor, R. 1 from Lumberton, and Reedie Barnes, Fairmont.
The bereaved have my sincere and profound sympathy.
