Mrs. Adair was a good Christian woman and took an active part in church work and in missionary circles and at the time of her death held an office in the Missionary Society.  She joined the Methodist church at Pine Log when she was fourteen years old and her whole life was devoted to the Lord.

The funeral took place from the Methodist church Saturday evening at three o’clock and the services were conducted by Rev. B. P. Allen, of Cedartown.  The church was crowded with friends of Mrs. Adair who had come to pay the last token of respect to her.  Many beautiful flowers and wreaths decorated the casket and were tendered by the Board of Stewards of the Methodist church, the different missionary societies and church organizations.
