Putnam County Herald December 14, 1933

Miss Leona Byrne died Sunday in a hospital in San Antonio, Texas. Her remains arrived here Tuesday and funeral services were conducted at Cookeville Methodist church Wednesday at 10 a.m. by Rev Dow Ensor.
Miss Byrne was, for many years, a faithful and successful teacher in the Cookeville City school. For the past several years she had been engaged in teaching in Mission Schools of the Southern Methodist Church.
For several years she taught in a Methodist Mission School in Cuba, but for the past few years she had been teaching in San Antonion, Texas on the Mexican border.
For the past few months, she had been suffering with heart trouble and for several days prior to her death had been critically ill.
She came to Cookeville as a young lady to teach in the city school and ever afterward regarded Cookeville as her home. She was a sister of the late Mrs Cleora Byrne Dowell, for many years a teacher in the Cookeville school. Miss Byrne made her home with Mr and Mrs Dowell until the death of Mrs Dowell a few years ago, since which time she had made her home with her brother, William J Byrne, well known groceryman of this city.
Miss Byrne devoted her life to educational and religious work. She was a lady of rare culture, and her life was one of useful and ennobling service.
She was a daughter of the late Terrell Byrne, who, for many years and until his death, was Jackson county's most prominent and highly respected citizen.
Miss Byrne was born and reared near Granville.
She is survived by 3 brothers, Bascomb, Granville; William J, Cookeville; Lemuel, Portland, Ore.
