Miss Lula Knight Pneumonia Victim
Funeral Service To Be Held Saturday at Macedonia – Brother Is In Critical Condition With Same Illness

Friends by the score were shocked to learn that Miss Lula Cora Jane Knight, 37, died at her home on the Etowah near Cartersville early Thursday morning, following a brief siege of pneumonia.  The news reached here shortly after six o’clock, the passing occasioning sorrow in many homes.

Although definite funeral plans have not been arranged, they have been set for Saturday at Macedonia, with Rev. Cleve Cowart officiating.  Interment will be in the Macedonia cemetery, John W. Jones, funeral director, in charge of arrangements.

Miss Knight is a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Roe Knight, one of Bartow County’s most prominent pioneer families.  Born and reared near Cartersville, she is widely known, gaining the love and respect of many friends.  She is a sister of Messrs. Bill, Joe, Wes and Jim Knight, all prominent citizens of this county.

Besides her brothers, she is survived by two sisters, Miss Mollie Knight and Mrs. John Crisp.

Of upright, Christian character, Knight had the love and respect of all with whom she came in contact.  Her willingness to help her friends in times of need was one of her most admirable traits, and she will be sorely missed from the circles.

Meanwhile, her brother, Wesley, is in critical condition.  He is suffering from pneumonia, and as the Tribune-News goes to press late Thursday afternoon, although he is receiving every attention, little hope is expressed for his recovery.

Scores of friends throughout the county offer tenderest sympathy to members of the bereaved family in their hour of trials and sorrow.

[NOTE: Mrs John Crisp is Lucy Knight.]
