Parker, Mary

 

Miss Mary Parker, of Tarboro, died at the home of Mr. R. C. Josey, Saturday morning April 1st, at 2 o’clock, after an illness of eight days.

She came from Tarboro just one week before her death perfectly well.  The night following her arrival she was taken very sick.  She was not thought dangerously sick at first but in a day or two alarming symptoms developed.  She began to sink and never rallied.  She contracted serious cold from which bronchial trouble set in, and this was the cause of death.  She had every possible attention that could be given.  Deceased was something more than 60 years old.  She was a woman of fine character and had many friends here.  Her remains were taken to Palmyra Saturday, put on the train and carried to Tarboro, where they were interred Sunday.  A large concourse of friends attended the funeral in the Primitive Baptist church.  The sermon was preached by Elder Bass, of Rocky Mount.

The body was accompanied to Tarboro by Mr. G. C. Weeks.
