Amidst a host of relatives and friends from near and far and a multitude of florals, simple but impressive funeral service for Mrs. Oscar Lipscomb was conducted at Cross Roads Baptist Church Sunday afternoon by Rev. Walter Adams assisted by Rev. N.A. Medford and Rev. A.R. Haman.

Rev. Adams paid tribute to the fine Christian life of the deceased using as his text the words from Proverbs, “The heart of her husband doeth safely trust in her and she will do him good all the days of her life; and her children rise up and call her blessed.”

Special music was rendered by a quartett composed of Misses Barbara Abernathy, Ginger Smith, Ellis Richard and R. Abernathy and a solo by Miss Sylvia Haman and Mrs. Luther Richards.

The six sons served as pallbearers for their mother, who was laid to rest in the church yard cemetery.

With the death of Mrs. Oscar Lipscomb Friday morning, one of Bartow County’s noble women passed from the earthly scene.

Her sterling character, wonderful Christian life and fine neighborly spirit endeared her to a host of friends and relatives.

Stricken with a fatal heart attack while visiting her sister, Mrs. Sam Hendrix at her home at Cass Station on Dec. 6, Mrs. Lipscomb was rushed to Howell-Quillian Hospital where despite the skill of physicians and nurses, her life ebbed away. Members of her family were constantly at her bedside.

As Miss Ella Cornelison, daughter of John H. Cornelison and Mahala Ketter Cornelison, pioneer citizens of Cherokee County, she was married to Oscar Lipscomb, Dec. 29, 1909 and to this happy union were born nine children who with their father survive.

For many years Mr. and Mrs. Lipscomb made their home in the White district and some thirteen years ago moving to a home on Grassdale Road.
