Mrs. L. Lipscomb, Beloved Matron, Passes at White

Funeral services for Mrs. Laura Lipscomb, 85, one of Bartow county’s best known and most beloved matrons, who died at her home in White Sunday afternoon following a long illness, were conducted Tuesday morning at ten o’clock from the White Cross Roads church, Rev. Guy N. Atkinson, pastor, officiating.

Interment was in the church cemetery, Owen Funeral Home in charge of arrangements.

Born in Cassville, Ga., February 23, 1856, Mrs. Lipscomb was a daughter of the late William and Susan McEver Crow, pioneer Hall county residents. She was married to the late Nathan Lipscomb, sixty-five years ago, and during most of that time they have made their home in this county.

A staunch, upright Christian character, Mrs. Lipscomb had been a member of the Woffords Cross Roads church for many years. She served diligently when her health permitted and was loved by all with whom she came in contact.

J.L., O.C., J.A., of White; W.C. of Cartersville, and H.H., of Detroit, Mich.; one sister, Mrs. J.M. Hall of Atlanta, and one brother Mr. L.C. Crowe, of Cartersville.

Friends extend tenderest sympathy to members of the bereaved family.


Close Friends Pay Tribute to Memory of Mrs. Lipscomb

On Sunday afternoon, June 1st, 1941, surrounded by loved ones and friends, all that was mortal of Mrs. Laura Lipscomb passed away, and the soul went back to God who gave it.

In failing health for several months, her condition became very serious two weeks before the end came. Despite her severe suffering, she was ever mindful of the welfare of those who cared for her so lovingly.

Her sunny, happy disposition won every one with whom she met and many mourn her passing.

Living to the ripe old age of 85 years, and her mind alert until the last few days, her life was so well lived. She leaves ten children all of whom were near in her last days.

The four daughters are Mrs. W.A. Burnette, Detroit, Mich.; Mrs. M.H. Denman and Miss Fannie Lipscomb, of White Ga.; Mrs. C.C. Holden, Englewood, Tenn. Six sons who bore the remains so tenderly to its last resting place, are Oscar C., J. Linton, James A., of White, Ga.; William C., Robert L., Cartersville, Ga.; and Herschel H., of Detroit, Mich.

In addition to her children, Mrs. Lipscomb is survived by 47 grandchildren, 20 great grandchildren, 24 in laws, one brother, Mr. L.C. Crowe, White, Rt. 2. Mrs. James M. Hall of Atlanta is the only sister and many other relatives.

Born in the Crow Springs community, February 23, 1856, Mrs. Lipscomb grew to young womanhood there, having joined Crow Springs Baptist church in early life, was ever loyal to the church of her choice and true to her God.

Was married to Nathan L. Lipscomb, October 24th, 1875. His earthly walk ceased November 27, 1918. Their early married years were spent in the same community where both had worshiped and attended school together. Later moving to the home where most of her life was spent. We can recall many friends who made up that fine neighborhood in those days, namely, the Gibbons, Pittard, Herring, Irick, Battle, Weems, Milner, Ward, Matthews, and Richards families, most all of whom she lived to see pass on or move away, many are the times she has recalled those happy days and especially the memory of Dr. R.S. Battle, who served them so faithfully as physician, neighbor and friend.

Later years brought other dear friends who year after year met as one big family for an annual picnic at this hospitable home and fine spring. Many happy memories linger and surely the seeds of kindness and good deeds sown by those dear hands will bear friends “a hundred fold.”

We are told that a favorite song in her early life was, “The Way Worn Traveler,” and in her ebbing life we could see again that mental picture of one nearing the end of a long journey and feel sure she will sing again with the Redeemed, “Palms of Victory,” Crowns of Glory Shall Wear.”

Bless her precious memory, may her good works live on through the generations.
