the Christian church, Piattsmouth,
Neb., Rev. Luther Moore officiat
ing. After an illness covering almost a
period of two weeks, Mrs. Elizabeth
A. Woodson passed to her reward
last evening. On Tuesday, August
17, Mrs. Woodson had the misfor
tune to fall and fracture her hip.
Owing to her advanced age and en
feebled condition, due to the exist

the condition of things.
Mrs. Woodson was born in West

months ago. She is also survived
by a brother, Philip Harrison, and
two Bisters, Mrs. W. S. Purdy and
Mrs. T. T. Wilkinson, all of this city.
In her lifetime Mrs. Woodson was
one of the best of women. She was
a devout Christian lady, one who al
ways felt the sustaining power and
influence of religion and whose every
Ideal was that of the true Christian.
Her personality was such that
throughout her long life she had
made a great many friends, all of
whom heard with the deepest sorrow
of her passing away. A loving
mother, her death has caused her
children the most profound grief,
and In their sorrow they have the
sincere condolence of a host of
