Obituary: The Pulaski Citizen 24 Sep 1944
On September 24, 1944, at 4:00 p.m., the Young's Chapel Presbyterian Communities lost one of its eldest and best loved members in the death of Mrs. Ellla Hollis Birdsong. She was born in 1863. Early in life she became a Christian and lived all her life in this community. From early in life she continued to grow in grace, knowledge, love for God. She was married to Ben Birdsong, who preceded her in death about 2 years ago. Together they embellished a Christian home into which were born ten children, the lives of whom testified to the sterling qualities of her character. She leaves eight children, three sons and five daughters, also seventeen great-grandchildren and a host of relatives and friends to mourn their loss. She won a place in the hearts of all who knew her, by her constant Christian life and interest in the welfare of all in the community. As a wife and mother, she was faithful in teaching her family by precept and example the way of a noble life. She was always optimistic and possessed a sweet, kind and lovable disposition, and a spirit to get along with people. So not only her family but all who knew her will call her blessed. She was a faithful Christian and a constant attendant upon the worship services of Young's Chapel Presbyterian Church. Her greatness was seen in the inner life she lived, rather than the outward. Her memory is engraved upon the hearts of her loved ones and will be a source of comfort and strength for many years to come. "In our hearts there is a picture more precious than silver or gold; It's the picture of our dear mother, and it will never, never grow old.
