Death of Mrs. Geo. W. Waldrop.

We regret to have to chronicle the death of this lady, which event occurred on last Friday morning.  She leaves a husband and an infant but a few weeks old, to mourn their sad loss.  The deceased was the daughter of Mrs. Williams and a niece of Col. R. H. Jones.  The writer had no acquaintance with Mrs. Waldrop, but we know that she was an amiable Christian lady, a dutiful daughter and a devoted wife.  We sympathize with the bereaved husband and orphaned infant.

Mrs. Jennie Waldroup, wife of our esteemed fellow-citizen, Mr. G. W. Waldroup, departed this life Dec. 8th, 1882.  She was born the 10th of August 1861, and daughter of R. H. and E. I. Williams, grand-daughter of Rev. S. G. Jones.  She embraced religion and joined the Methodist church of this place, in 1876, during the pastorate of Rev. A. J. Jarrell.  She was married to Mr. Waldroup in April 1880 by her uncle, R. H. Jones.

Jennie was a good girl, a devoted and loving wife, faithful friend and a cheerful patient, an uncomplaining sufferer during her long sickness, was never heard to murmur a word.  Her bright contented smile seemed to say all is well with me whether I live or die.  “Well done, thou good and faithful servant” may be said truthfully of her.  The funeral services were conducted at her residence, participated in by Rev. A. J. Jarrell, of the Methodist church, and R. B. Headden, of the Baptist, also Col. R. H. Jones.

We remember her bright black eyes and lovely face.  Her sweet spirit and happy disposition, these shall never perish from our minds.  She had one precious babe to precede her to the heavenly home, and left a sweet little boy about 4 months old to follow after.  It is so blessed to feel that our friends are not lost whom we have buried out of sight, but have gone before, transferred to the family circle in heaven which is but part of the family on earth, and we are passing over.—A friend, Cartersville, Ga., December 20th 1882.
