Surviving, besides the husband, are one daughter, Mrs. Virginia KEEL, Rochester; one son, Oden BARGER, Rochester; and three grandsons. Two brothers, Charles Williams WEST and Hervey Oden WEST, preceded her in death.
Funeral services will be held at 4 p.m. Friday at the Zimmerman Brothers fneral home with the Rev. Richard MITCHELL of the First Baptist church officiating. Burial will be in the I.O.O.F. cemetery here.
