"Claude Mason, 81, Dies;
Retired Baptist Pastor

The Rev. Claude Mason, pastor emeritus at First Baptist Church of Rossville and
for the past 25 years the chaplain of Lane Funeral Home, died Saturday in a
local hospital. He was 81.
The son of the late Samuel K. and France(s) Cochran Mason, he had pastured churches in Georgia and Kentucky for more than 50 years, retiring in 1979.
His last fulltime pastorate was First Baptist Church of Rossville, where he

An active member of the Exchange Club of Rossville for more than 30 years, Mr. Mason served as president on two occasions, and worked on numerous committees. The club
honored him with many awards, including the Book of Golden Deeds.
