Miss Deavers, 76, Dies at Hospital

Miss Ella Deavers, 76, a native land former resident of Rockingham County for a number of years, who had been making her home at New Creek, W. Va., for the past 31 years, died at 6:15 Monday evening at Rockingham Memorial Hospital.

Miss Deavers had not been well for the past six weeks and had been a patient in the hospital since, Oct. 29. Little promise had been held for her recovery.

A daughter of the late Isaac Deavers and Rebecca Rolston Deavers, she was born in Rockingham County where she spent the early years of her life. She moved into the home of the late Mr. and Mrs. William Flemings when she was a girl of 14 years and had made her home with this family and the succeeding generations since that time. She had been residing with the Flemings family in New Creek, W, Va., since 1924.

She possessed a kind and friendly disposition and endeared her¬self to all with whom she came in contact. She was a member of the Methodist Church in West Virginia.

She is survived by two sisters; Miss Polly Deavers, of Timberville, and Mrs. Barbara Ritchie, of Harrisonburg: a brother, David Ft. Deavers, of Singers Glen: and a half-sister, Mrs. Laura B. Steele, of Park View. A number of nieces and nephews also survive.

She was preceded in death by a number of sisters and brothers and half-sisters and half-brothers. The body is at the Lindsey funeral home pending final funeral arrangements. Burial will be in the Cooks Creek Presbyterian Church cemetery.
