MRS. CORA E. KILLION RITES WERE AT DEVON


Many sorrowing friends and relatives attended the funeral yesterday afternoon of Mrs. Cora Etta Killion, prominent pioneer resident of Devon, at the Devon Methodist church. The Rev. J.R. Williams of Uniontown conducted the comforting service.

Mr. Williams read scripture, including the fourteenth chapter of John. He offered prayer, then read the obituary. His comforting remarks were based on verse 10 of Psalm 90, "The days of our years are threescore and ten." He spoke of the long, useful and Christian life of the deceased and what a splendid heritage she leaves her children. In closing Mr. Williams read the poem "Song for Comfort," following with prayer.

The many floral tokens covered the front of the pulpit and were banked around the casket.

The hymns "No Night There," "When the roll Is Called Up Yonder" and "In the Sweet Bye and Bye" were sung by Mrs. Lola Johnson, Mrs. Edna Johns, Dave Sipe and Ed Johnson, accompanied by Mrs. Rowena Farmer.

Interment was made in the family lot in the Centerville cemetery. Pallbearers were Eph Kepley, Floyd Ramsey, Alfred Farmer, Lee Farmer, Douglas McCrum and Nixon Blair.

A son and wife, Mr. and Mrs. Otto Killion of Kansas City, and family attended the service.
