Mrs. E. Knight Buried Tuesday

Funeral services Mrs. Ernest Knight, 47, well-known Cartersville matron who died at her home late Sunday evening, were conducted from Baptist Tabernacle on Tuesday afternoon at 2:30 o’clock, Rev. George Crow, assisted by Rev. Andy Tate, officiating.

Mrs. Knight had been ill only a short time and news of her death comes as a great shock to her host of friends throughout this section.

Interment was in the family lot at Oak Hill Cemetery, the following friends serving as pallbearers: Messrs. A.V. Neal, Walt Crow, Joe Bradley, Grady Knight, Williard Knight, Wallace Jenkins.  Owen Funeral Home was in charge of arrangements.

Born in Pickens County, February 19, 1893, Mrs. Knight was the daughter of G.C. and Ada Smith Fowler, pioneer residents of that county.  She was married 30 years ago to Mr. Ernest Knight and for the past several years they have made their home in Cartersville.

An active member of the Baptist church, Mrs. Knight numbered her friends by her acquaintances.  A kind word for all and malice towards none, she enjoyed the respect and confidence of her many friends.

Besides her husband, she is survived by two daughters, Mrs. Alla Mae Gilstrap and Miss Della Knight, both of Cartersville; five brothers, Messers Ray Fowler of Atlanta, Gordon Fowler of Smyrna, Tom, Zack and Gus Fowler of Cartersville; two sisters, Mrs. H.C. Jones and Mrs. Jim Vance, also of Cartersville.

Friends extend tenderest sympathy to members of the bereaved family in their hour of great sorrow.
