The community was shocked to learn the death of Mrs. Mary Sechrest, who suffered a paralytic stroke Thursday morning and passed away about 5:30 that evening.

She leaves to mourn their loss her husband, G. W. Sechrest; four children Arvel Sechrest, of Hammond, Ind. Mrs Bonnie Montgomery of Sand Ridge, Mrs Lestie Wesleyof this community, and Verus Sechrest, of Lawrenceville; several grandchildren, three sisters and five brothers.

The sorrowing family and relatives have the deepest sympathy of our community in their dark hour of sorrow.

Funeral services were conducted by Rev W. O. Albert, of Birds, at East Pinkstaff at 2 o'clock Sunday afternoon with burial in St Paul cemetery.
