On Sunday morning last, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Evan L. Walker on North Main street, occurred the death of Mrs. Robert W. Shepherd, Sr. She had been a sufferer from paralysis for a number of years, and her death was not unexpected.
The funeral occurred from the Walker home Monday afternoon and was largely attended. The services were conducted by Rev. R.L. Bolton, pastor of the Madison Baptist church, and Rev. A.W. Quillian, of the Methodist church. Beautiful and worthy tribute was paid the long life of good deeds of this notably good woman. A choir composed of Mrs. A.G. Foster, Mrs. Roy Malone, Mr. C.M. Furlow and Mr. E.G. Atkinson sang "Beautiful Isle of Somewhere," "Lead Kindly Light" and "Abide With Me." There were many beautiful floral offerings attesting the affectionate regard in which the deceased was held by so many people.
The pall bearers were Messrs. E.R. Lambert, Shields Burney, Lee Trammell, Fred Ingram, Tom Holland and Bat Vason. Interment was in the family lot of the city cemetery.
Mary Page Moseley was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Blount Moseley, and was born in Putnam county, Ga., May 8, 1854, being in the 70th year of her age. On June 5, 1873, at the ancestral home in Putnam county, she was married to Robert W. Shepherd, who survives her with five children -- Mrs. L.H. Walker of Morgan county, Mrs. E.L. Walker of Madison, R.W. Shepherd, Jr. of Godfrey, Mrs. R.F. Davis of Atlanta, and Carter Shepherd of Madison. Surviving sisters are Mrs. Lula Baynes, Greensboro, Mrs. Annie Baldwin, Macon, Mrs. A.J. Bonner, Godfrey, Miss Gussie Moseley, Greensboro. Surviving brothers are Messrs. B.A., J.B., and Sherwood Moseley. Many other relatives survive her.
She was a member of Antioch Baptist church. She was a woman who belonged to the old school of thought and action -- kind, gentle, and womanly at all times and in the relations of her life. She lived her life in the sunshine of right thinking and right living. Her life was a blessing and a benediction, not only to her own loved ones, but to her community and those who knew and loved her.
