On Thursday, November 12, 1925, the death angels visited the home of Mr. Kay Summey and took from their home, their loving mother, Mrs. Tilda Summey.

She was a loving mother and was loved by all whom knew her.  She leaves nine children, three brothers and a host of grandchildren and friends to mourn her death.

She was converted in early girlhood.

She joined the Primitive Baptist church and attended her meetings regular.  She was ill for about a year and bore her suffering with patience.  She always had a kind word for everyone.

Loving hands did all that could be done, but the Lord knew best.  She was a Christ working woman, and strived to help others.

She was seventy-five years of age.  She was married to Linford Summey, and took all the sorrows and troubles to see him laid to rest.

Later she married to Johnny Summey, who died and left her alone.

Cheer up sad ones, and let us all try to live such lives, so when we are called, we can meet Aunt Tilda.  She is gone, but not forgotten.

She was laid to rest in Macedonia Cemetery with Rev. J.T. and W.R. Abernathy officiating.
