The remains of Mrs. Lawson Fraser, of St. Louis, arrived here Sunday and were interred in the Booneville Cemetery at 1:30, with Rev. J. V. Bennett conducting the sad rites.

Mrs. Fraser was before her marriage Miss Lucy Simmons, the daughter of a pioneer from old Tishomingo County, Mr. Tucker Simmons, a good citizen who stood high in the Masonic circles.  He was probably one of the charter members of the local lodge.

Mrs. Fraser had been a member of the Carolina Methodist Church since early childhood.  She was known for her Christian virtues, her kindness of heart.  Outstanding was her administrations to the sick.  It was never too dark or cold, the distance too great to go to her friends in time of distress.  It is wonderful to leave such a record, marked by sincerity of purpose, unselfishness and a dependability under all circumstances.

The remains were accompanied by the sorrowing husband, son and daughter, with beautiful flowers covering her casket.

The sympathy of friends go out to the grief of the stricken ones.  She leaves her husband, a son, Mr. Tucker Fraser, a daughter, Mrs. Charles Dickey, of St. Louis, a number of grandchildren, and a brother, Mr. James Simmons.
