Mrs. HARRIET LEONARD Died Tuesday Morning At Home Of Daughter,
Mrs. Samuel LAIRD, In Brooksland Heights, Funeral Wednesday
Mrs. Harriet LEONARD, aged 93, died at the home of Mr. and
Mrs. Sam LAIRD, 312 S. Twenty-First St., Brooksland Heights,
Tuesday morning at 9 o'clock.
She was Mrs. LAIRD's mother. Mrs. LEONARD's death was due to
a cancer, from which she had been a terrible sufferer, but in
spite of her great affliction she was quite active up to
two months ago. Her affliction first became apparent about a
year ago. The wonder is that her life was prolonged as long as
it was. Early in life she professed religion and became
a member of the Methodist church. In addition to Mrs. LAIRD
the other children are Mrs. Geo. JONES, Howell, Ind.; Miss
May LEONARD, Springfield; G. B. LEONARD, Danville; John LEONARD,
south of this city. Among the nieces and nephews are Mrs. Emory
RUTHERFORD, Mrs . Frank HUTCHISON, Mrs. Sam FROST and J.L. HUTCHISON,
of this city.
The funeral services will be conducted at the LAIRD residence,
Thursday morning at 10 o'clock, by Rev. W. F. DANIEL, followed
by interment at Pleasant Grove.
