Nannie Toney


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 suchb 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
