Obituary: The Pulaski Citizen 27 Dec 1917 WOODROW "Dr. Love"

Mrs. Fannie Watson is no more. A short time ago we wrote up the Watsons reunion and also a sketch of this subject and we heard that she was well pleased with what we said and now it will not be necessary to repeat some things said on that occasion. On Wednesday night, Dec. 19, 1917, death came to this home and robbed it of the greatest Jewel that had ever shone there. It was the mother. And like a thief in the night he did not tarry but claimed his own in about thirty minutes time after she had his final call. When stricken she called for help and told the family she was dying. The end came about eleven o'clock. This was a great shock to all of her children who were not expecting her death, and also her friends. Heart failure was the cause.
Another loving voice is hushed in silence, and her long days work has been well done. And while the children cannot come home to see their mother any more they can have another family reunion on a brighter shore. She was sixty-seven years old on Sept. 15 and was the last charter member of the Presbyterian Church at the Chapel that was organized in 1872 and where her body was conveyed to its last resting place Thursday afternoon, where a large crowd of sympathizing friends had assembled. Re. J. T. Wade conducted services, while Miss May McCracken presided at the organ. On arriving at the Chapel the first members of the family that we met were Mrs. Maxie Aymett and Mrs. Lucy Curtis with their husbands. The girls represented the picture of grief, and when we shook hands with them all, Maxie said, "Mr. Turner this is awful." They reminded me of our Saviour as he stood by the grave weeping for those he loved. So in him we have the picture of both human and divine blended in grief and to us this is a beautiful picture. In fact, we have seen worse pictures in this world than that of grief. And we decided that is good for us to sometimes have the fountain of grief opened up in our souls, while tears unbidden flow, for it brings us down to where we can look up to Him and say in pensive tones, Our Father who art in Heaven, Hallowed be Thy name, They Kingdom come Thy will be done, On Earth as it is in Heaven." Peace and love were the dominant traits in her character and the life of Mrs. Watson had been as tranquil, smooth, as a calm sea, and like the rose of summer had shed its fragrances on all who come in contact with her, one gave to the world some noble sons and daughters to be our friends and neighbors. And we hope that the dear friends will realize that to her death was only the gateway to the morning of eternal day, where she will bloom forever.
