Dobson, Oct. 18.—It is with a
tinge of sadness we trace these
lines in memory of "Grandma
Reid" as she was familiarly
called, who died last Wednesday
evening. As the day deepened
Into darkness, her spirit went out
into the vast beyond.
Mrs. Lou Reid, nee Bobbltt, was
the widow of the late N. J. Reid,
and mother of our townsman and
successful merchant, W. E. Reid,
her only son, the other children
having died some years ago. She
was 77 years old, and had been in
feeble health for some years.
Everything, was ddne for her
comfort in declining years, that
tender hands could do. Mrs.
Brooks of Lenoir, was her most
recent nurse and was with her to
the end. Funeral services were
held in the Methodist church on
Friday, conducted by her pastor,
Rev. C. W. Russell, assisted by her
former pastor, Rev. Totherow of
Winston-Salem. The beautiful
floral tributes were tokeni of the
esteem of many friends. Her body
was placed in the Dobson ceme
tery, beside her late husband.
