J.L. Lipscomb Goes to Reward After Illness

Funeral services for J.L. (Lint) Lipscomb, 65, one of Bartow’s best loved citizens, were held Monday afternoon at Cross Roads Baptist Church, with Rev. C.W. Hayes of Chattsworth, and Rev. Amos Cash, of Columbus, officiating.

Interment followed in the family lot at Cross Roads Cemetery, with Messrs. Glenn, Roy, and John Lipscomb, Billie and Bobbie Collins, and T.W. Barnett serving as pallbearers. Arrangements were in charge of Barton Funeral Home, of Adairsville.

A great concourse of relatives and friends gathered at the church and about the church-yard, attesting to the great love and esteem in which Mr. Lipscomb was held. About the casket and altar of the church a great profusion of lovely floral offerings bore mute testimony to the warm place he enjoyed in the hearts of all who knew him.

The end came for Mr. Lipscomb Saturday morning, when he breathed his last at home in White. He had been a patient sufferer for months, and was perfectly resigned to his fate, often expressing a willingness to meet his master face to face.

To those about the bedside, he assured them he had always felt that life was like a schoolroom—one must make good marks to pass the various lessons.

“And I now feel as if I shall have a good report card to hand in, when I enter my heavenly home,” was the philosophy and belief which carried him safely to “that bourne from which no traveler returns.”

Mr. Lipscomb spent his life as a farmer and his efforts was most successful. When his health began to fail, as his boys went off to the service, he sold his farm on the Grassdale road to Mr. Bill Bishop, moved to White and retired.

He was married thirty-five years ago to Miss Nida Collins, a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. W.H. Collins. To this union were born three daughters and four sons—Mrs. Sydney Stegall, Mrs. Emmett Bell, Mrs. Frank Hann, Messrs. Nathan, W.H., Harry and Walter Lipscomb.

A son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Nathan Lipscomb, the deceased was a brother of Mrs. Milton Denman, Mrs. C.C. Holden, Mrs. Will Barnett, Mrs. Fred Bishop, Messrs. O.C., Rob, Herschel, Jim and Kit Lipscomb.

In addition, Mr. Lipscomb leaves to mourn his loss a large family connection, together with a legion of friends who will always remember him as one of the noble influences of their lives.
