A Note of Thanks.

We can never forget the thoughtful ministrations of the many friends in Cartersville and elsewhere who so greatly comforted us with their loving sympathy in the deep affliction which has come into our lives.  We cannot express our gratitude, we can only invoke the blessings of our heavenly Father upon every one of them.

Mr. W. P. Lovejoy and Children.

Mrs. Lovejoy Dead.
Beloved Wife of Presiding Elder Dalton District Passes Away.
[Mrs. Lovejoy’s death is mentioned in many places in this issue, another obituary can be found on page 1 of the January 21, 1909 issue.]

Mrs. Anna Lovejoy, wife of Rev. W. P. Lovejoy, presiding elder of the Dalton district, M. E. Church North Georgia Conference, died, at her home in this city, last Sunday.  Mrs. Lovejoy’s illness was very brief, having been attacked with a severe cold a few days before her death, which terminated with rheumatism of the heart.  Mrs. Lovejoy had only lived in Cartersville a few years but during that time she had impressed herself on the people for her intellectuality, her strong force of character and her deep piety.  She has been a great force in religious work.  She was reared in the Presbyterian church but has been a member of the Methodist church since 1884.  She was president of the Woman’s Foreign Missionary Society of the North Georgia Conference for twelve years and was vice president for a number of years previous and up to her death.

At the time of her death she was president of the local Woman’s Christian Temperance Union and had for years been a great advocate and worker in the temperance cause.

Mrs. Anna Lowe Lovejoy was born at Ashland, Tenn., August 10, 1846, the twelfth child of Gideon Harris and Delana Dowlen Lowe.  She was married to Rev. W. P. Lovejoy, November 22, 1871.  Surviving her as her immediate family are her husband and four children – Mrs. Frank Harwell and Hatton Lovejoy, of LaGrange; Mrs. Paul Akin, of Cartersville, and Paul Lovejoy of Schenectady, N. Y.  The oldest daughter, Anna Lowe, died in infancy. She was an active member of the Cherokee Club and of all the church societies.

The funeral took place Monday from the Methodist church and was largely attended.  Rev. R. B. Bigham conducted the funeral services and paid high tribute to the beautiful and useful life of Mrs. Lovejoy.
