Mrs. H.C. Poole of Farmington Died Monday Morning

Mrs. Mattie C. Poole, beloved and Christian citizen of our county died at her home at Farmington early Monday morning after a short illness. She was 51 years of age and had a wide circle of friends in our county, where she had lved (sic) all her life.

Mrs. Poole was a member of Freeman's Creek Baptist church and the funeral was conducted from the Farmington Baptist church Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock, with Rev. S.E. Rogers in charge of the ceremony. The body was tenderly laid to rest in the Farmington cemetery. The following gentlemen acted as pallbearers; Ernest Saxon, Glenn Kilpatrick, Horace Williams, Williford Haygood, Harold Bugg, Percy Middlebrooks, Edgar Carson and John Middlebrooks.

Mrs. Poole was enjoying perfect health until she took her bed only a short time ago. Everything that medical skill and tender hands could do was done, but the Master had called her to come home and rest and she answered His call. She was a true Christian woman and to know her was to love and admire her.

Mrs. Poole is survived by her husband, Mr. H.C. Poole; father, Mr. Z.B. Middlebrooks; four daughters, Mrs. T.E. Giles, of Atlanta; Misses Nellie Mae and Henrietta Poole, of Farmington; Mrs. S.C. Vickery, of Farmington; four sisters, Mrs. Mary E. Haygood, of Athens; Mrs. W.E. Bugg, of Madison, Mrs. Eulilia Callaway of California, Mrs. W.A. Zuber of Farmington; three brothers, Mr. J.H. Middlebrooks, of Farmington, Mr. T.A. Middlebrooks, of Montana, and Mr. J.B. Middlebrooks of Athens.

The Enterprise joins in with the bereaved family in their sad loss of their wife, brothers, sisters and children. She has done what every one will have to do sooner or later. She is peacefully sleeping. She knows no pain. She has gone on to prepare a place for her loved ones and friends, and when the time come (sic) she will meet us on that throne not made with hands.

Sleep on.
