Good Lady Dies.
Mrs. Carrie Sullivan, of Cassville, Succumbs to Attack of Paralysis

Mrs. Carrie Sullivan, widow of the late Thomas A. Sullivan, died at the home of her nephew, Mr. W.D. Pittard in Cassville last Friday night.

Mrs. Sullivan received a stroke of paralysis about a year ago from which she was rendered helpless, and about a week before she passed away she was stricken with apoplexy and left in a semi-conscious stupor from which she never recovered.

She was born in Newberry, S.C., December 15th, 1830, and came to Georgia in 1941 with her step-father, Squire Lemuel Dillard and was married to Mr. Sullivan in 1949 and had lived in this county ever since with the exception of three years when she lived in Mississippi. She had been a widow for thirty years, Mr. Sullivan dying in 1880.

Since her husband died she made her home with Mrs. S.L. Pittard until Mrs. Pittard broke up housekeeping about a year ago, when she lived at the home of her nephew, Mr. W.T. Pittard.

She was a good Christian woman and her death was quite a shock to her community where she was loved and admired by every one. Her Christian spirit was shown throughout her life by her willingness and readiness to do for others and to help charity in every cause. Up to a year ago when she was paralyzed, she did a lot of good work in administering to the sick and helping in the Lord’s work.

Mrs. Sullivan had been a member of the Cassville Baptist church for 55 years and was quite an active worker in it.

She leaves no children, but is survived by the following relatives: Mrs. S.L. Pittard of Cassville, her sister; W.D. and J.D. Pittard, of Cassville, and Conner Pittard of this city, nephews; Mrs. J.M. Serratt, of Cassville, and Mrs. R.E. Wilson, of Whites, nieces.

Mrs. Sullivan had visited Mrs. S.L. Munford and the family of Mr. Conner Pittard in this city a number of times and had many friends in this city who will mourn her loss and the grief stricken family have the sympathy of all.

The funeral was conducted Saturday afternoon at two o’clock from the residence of W.T. Pittard in Cassville by Rev. C.H. Yearby, pastor of the Cassville Baptist church, and interment took place at the Cassville cemetery.
