Memorial To Mrs.
Alice Croom Hunter
By: MACY COX
At the close of the Baptist church
history given by Miss Macy Cox on
November 20th at the one hundred
and thirteenth anniversary, a beau
tiful tribute was paid to Mrs. Alice
Cnum Hunter, wife of S. B. Hunter.
On November 1st, 1948, she went
to sleep, safe in the arms 01 Jesus.
We have no words to express our
love and appreciation of - Mrr.
Hunter. She rendered sweet and
beautiful unselfish services to her
Lord, her church, her home, and
community, and is inexpressibly
missed in all these channels. Truly
her life was a channel of blessing
and her spirit Is still leading in
lives she touched as teacher about
thirty-five years of the Intermed
iate Sunday School Class for girls.
and was nianist about the same
number of years. She was a faith
fuW devoted member of our Wo
men's Missionary Society all the
years after returning to Magnolia
to live, and served several years
as president on up to the time of
her home-going. Always ready to
give her co-workers a smile and
words of encouragement May her
mantle fall on the present and
future teachers and pupils of the
! Intermediate Girls Class, and as
closing memorial of her let us re
member that we make our own
memdVials while we live and are
only remembered by what we have
Just here. Miss Macy presented
a life-like picture of Mrs. Hunter,
given by a family linked together
with her in beautiful ties of friend
