On Sunday, June 1, Mrs. T. W. Hunter, wife of County Superintendent T. W. Hunter in the quiet place of her family circle, passed from life to her heavenly reward. Mrs. Hunter, the daughter of W. H. Hudgens, was born in the Shackle Island Community April 9, l886. She was married to Supt. Hunter in 1917, and to this union were born two little daughters, now aged five and three years, respectively. For several months the patient spirit had battled the ravages of tuberculosis, and her death came not as a sudden blow to the relatives and friends. Those who knew this dear woman truly say she typified the noblest and best in the characterization of lovely womanhood. No lovelier guiding influence could have been given to the two young step-sons, Dewey and William, to whom she was deeply devoted, than the love of this good mother. In their great loss the husband and children have the sympathy of a host of friends. On Monday afternoon in the calm, significant beauty of numerous floral tributes, surrounded by a concourse of sorrowing relatives and friends, the last sad rites were said by the Reverands Danley and Parsons, and the remains of Jennie Hudgens Hunter were consigned to the Old Beech Burial Grounds, of which church she had long been a devoted member. Beech chapter, O. E. S. conducted the burial ceremony at the grave. A Friend.
