Mrs. R. W. Smith of this city died yesterday morning after an illness of several weeks. She was a good woman and bore her long continued suffering with true Christian fortitude. She was a member of the First Baptist Church of this city, and before her sickness was a faithful attendant at all the meetings of the church, the Sunday School, and the Woman’s Mission Society. She was buried late yesterday afternoon in the city cemetery. The bereaved husband and motherless children have the kindest sympathy of our whole community.

Mrs. Mittie Smith, wife of Mr. R. W. Smith, died Sept. 8, 1884, at her home in Cartersville, Ga. 

She was born at Jonesboro Ga., March 16, 1851, where she joined the Baptist church, at the early age of thirteen.  On December 19, 1872 she was married to Mr. R. W. Smith.  The deceased was a devoted wife, and kind mother.  Her death has cause a great vacuum in the home-circle –where a bereaved husband and four orphaned children mourn her loss.  She was a kind and obliging neighbor, an earnest and faithful church member, a zealous and exemplary Christian.

Her husband says: “Through her godly walk and earnest prayers for me, I feel that God, for Christ’s sake, has pardoned my sins.”

Her memory will long be cherished by her church, her friends, and her family.  We feel she well deserves the plaudit, “Well done, good and faithful servant.” --- Pastor.
