Mrs. Lizzie Gaines Quillian.

Last Friday morning Mrs. Lizzie Gaines Quillian died very suddenly at her home at Cass Station, five miles from this city.

For some years Mrs. Quillian has been in a somewhat enfeebled state of health, however she has been strong enough to see after her household duties, and it was while busily engaged in the affairs of her home when death came to her.  She was alone in the house when her attack came.  A servant who was at work in the garden heard her call and hastening in the house, found she had fallen on the floor, and was very faint.  Mrs. Quillian told the servant to go for her step-daughter, Miss Jennie Quillian, who was at the W. & A. depot nearby.  Miss Quillian, with others, hurried to the house, reaching there just as her mother expired.

Her only child, Mr. Capers G. Quillian, lives in Dallas, Texas, and a message was dispatched to him, conveying the sad news.  He came at once to his old home, arriving Sunday night.

The funeral services were held in the Methodist church at Cass Station on Monday, at 10 o’clock a. m.  Rev. Dr. R. B. Headden, of the First Baptist church of Rome, assisted by Rev. Mr. Branham, of the Cartersville Methodist church, conducted the services.  One of the largest congregations ever assembled on a similar occasion at that place filled the church to overflowing.

Dr. Headden read passages of scripture from Isaiah and Revelations.  He delivered a beautiful and impressive sermon on the beauty, safety and glorious ending, of the Christian’s journey.  He referred to his life long acquaintance with the deceased, which acquaintance began in Cassville in antebellum days.

The services were concluded in Oak Hill cemetery, where the remains were interred beside those of her husband.
