Miss Heath Dead.
Amiable and Popular Young Woman Dies at Cassville Last Week.

The community of Cassville was shocked and inexpressibly grieved by the death of Miss Leila Heath, a very popular and esteemed lady near that place on Tuesday of last week.

Miss Heath was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J.A. Heath and was about twenty-seven years old. She had been afflicted all her life, but bore her sufferings without murmuring or complaining. She was  always patient and kind to every one, was very good and obedient to her parents, had ever a sweet kind word for her brothers and sisters, it mattering not how much she was suffering.

While it was not expected that she could get well, her sudden death was a great blow to the family. Everything that the skill of physicians and careful nursing could do was done for her, but it was in vain for about five o’clock on Tuesday, April 6th, the young life passed out into the great beyond. She had suffered all the little frail body could endure and now she is sweetly sleeping “safe in the arms of Jesus.”

She had been a consistent member of the Baptist church about ten years.

The funeral services were conducted at Olivevine church and the remains were interred in the cemetery there. The sympathy of her many friends go out to the family in the loss that has come to them, while their loss is her gain.
