Mrs. W.B. Langford Answers Final Call Last Friday Noon

Mrs. W.B. Langford, aged 77 died last Friday at 12:30 at the home of her daughter, Mrs. W.H. Hodges, after a lingering illness of about a year. Mrs. Langford had been doing all her homework up until the last few months. And what she suffered no human being knows. She bore her affliction without a murmur and only until a short while before her death would she consent for any medicine of any kind to relieve her sufferings. Mrs. Langford was one of Watkinsville’s most noblest women and a truer Christian never lived. She was a member of the Watkinsville Christian church. And took a great deal of interest in church affairs. The church was depending upon her for advice and aid - and as long as she lived she has never failed to give more than she was really financially able for the church. Mrs. Langford always had a kind word for every one she knew – never kuocking (sic) a living soul, but always looking on the bright side of life. The funeral services were conducted Sunday morning at 11 o’clock from the First Christian church by Rev. L.F. Adams, her pastor, assisted by Rev. B.H. Trammell, Methodist pastor of the Watkinsville church. Interment was in Watkinsville cemetery. The pallbearers were Messrs. E.J. Crowley, W.M. Nicholson, A.C. Elder, J.M. McRee, C.A. Duggan and C.A. Ashford.

Mrs. Langford is survived by one brother, Mr. D.W. Elder, of our county; three daughters, Mrs. W.H. Hodges, Mrs. A.W. Meaders of our town, Mrs. Chas. Mathis, of Macon, and a score of grand children and two great grand children.

Mrs. Langford will be greatly missed by her scores and scores of relatives and friends; and the cuhrch (sic) has lost one of the most worthy members.

The Enterprise joins with the entire community in expressing its deepest sympathy in this sad hour to the bereaved relatives.

In Memoriam

Since Providence has removed from our midst our dearly beloved Christain sister and friend, Mrs. W.B. Langford, who was a loyal Christian, a devoted Mother, a true friend and a good neighbor. In that we shall especially miss her from the church and from the Missionary Society where she was always faithful-

THEREFORE, be it resolved that our loss is her Eternal gain. The workers on this earth die but God’s work never fails.

THAT we, as a church, as a Missionary Society and as a Ladies Aid Society shall cherish her memory by being more faithful, more true and more attentive to the cause of Christ and the work that she loved so much.

THAT we tender our loving sympathy to the children and relatives and bed them look unto Jesus who can heal and comfort the broken hearted.

THAT a copy of these resolutions be kept in the Clerk’s Book and also published in The Oconee Enterprise.
