Mrs. John Toney, Stricken Here Yesterday Dies At Home Soon After
Was in Usual Health Until Early in Afternoon. Will Be Buried at Oakwood
Cemetery Tomorrow Morning.

   Yesterday's Register-News told of the attact of heart trouble, which Mrs.
Nannie A. TONEY, wife of John Toney,
suffered while shopping in the downtown business district. Mrs. Toney was
hurried to her home in a car, but
failed to obtain relief, and died at 6 o'clock last evening.
   Mrs. Toney had suffered with heart trouble for the past twelve to fifteen
years, and while in town yesterday
had consulted a physician, and medicine had been obtained for her. When she
was stricken yesterday her
physician was hurriedly called, and he ministered to her, and as soon as her
condition would justify she
was taken home in a car.
   Until she was stricken early in the afternoon she had been in her usual
health and she and her husband
ate dinner at a local restaurant.
   With her husband she had come to Mt. Vernon to do some shopping and to
consult a physician, and
had driven here in a buggy. Mr. Toney returned home in the buggy, but Mrs.
Toney's condition was such
it was deemed best to hasten the trip by sending her in a car.
   Mr. and Mrs. Toney and their children lived on Jefferson avenue some
years ago, removing from Mt. Vernon to
Ina, where Mr. Toney was a section foreman. His health failed and the family
moved to a farm about two and a
half miles from Bonnie, where they still live.
   Mrs. Toney was born in Union county, Illinois, June 29,1854, and her
maiden name was Vansel. She and Mr.
Toney were united in marriage in 1875, at Jonesboro, and moved to Mt. Vernon
in 1882, where they lived until
they moved to Ina.
   Mrs. Toney is survived by her husband, John  Toney and following named
children: Bert Toney, Danville, Ill.,
Walter Toney, Ina, William Toney, Johnson City, and Mrs. John Puckett,
living near Hickory Hill, Jefferson county.
Three children are dead.
   Mrs. Toney joined the Baptist church when twelve years old, and lived
throughout her life a faithful
christian. She was a member of the Baptist church at Ina at the time of her
death. She was a home woman in
every sense of the word snd her first thought was ever of her family and
their comfort. No sacrifice was too great
for her to make for her loved ones, and she thought not of self, where the
interests of her husband and children
were concerned.
   Funeral services will be held tomorrow at 10 o'clock at the family home
and burial will follow at Oakwood.
   It is the desire of the family that the Rev. C.C. Mitchell conduct the
services. He is now engaged in a meeting
 at Dalhgren.

Mrs. Toney died 29 November 1920
