Mrs. Ward Dead.
A Good Lady of the Community Succumbs to Consumption.

Mrs. Joe Ward, wife of Mr. W. W. Ward, died at the home of her brother, Mr. L. C. Ginn, on Monday. Mrs. Ward had been afflicted for a long time and her husband moved with her from Texas to this community about four years ago, hoping that her health would be benefited by the change.  She slowly grew worse, however, until the end came at the time stated.

Mrs. Ward was a sister of Messrs. W. W. and L. C. Ginn. She leaves, besides these, to mourn her loss, a husband and two children, one a daughter, who is here, and the other a son, who is in Texas.  She was a faithful member of the Baptist church and a kind hearted good woman, who will be sadly missed by her relations and by all who knew her.

The funeral took place Tuesday the funeral discourse being preached by Rev. A. W. Bealer at Rebecca’s chapel, where numerous of Mrs. Ward’s friends gathered to pay tribute by their presence to her worth as a woman.  Rev. W. R. Banham also assisted at the services.  The remains were interred at the Tumlin cemetery, on the Cassville road.
