It pains us to record the death
of this ' lovable lady. She was
i well known in our little village
where she had made several visits
to her daughter, Mrs. Professor
Gore. Her pleasant manners, her
captivating conversation, and her
earnest sincerity of conviction on
all social problems rendered her
a delightful companion and gave
her a distinct and impressive per
sonality. Mrs. Williams was an inde
fatigable worker . in her church "
and was a pioneer in organizing
the Woman's Missionary Society.
She had been married for forty
six years and had been a model
woman in the domestic . and so
cial circles. About eighteen
months ago she suffered a stroke
of paralysis, from which she par
tially and slowly recovered, until
she hoped to visit Chapel Hill
again. uDis aliter visum." A
second stroke of paralysis closed
her life at her residence in Balti
more, and she now sleeps with
the just. "Our deepest sympathy
is extended to her crushed and
stricken family. May God sup
port them in their sorrow.
