DOROTHY ANN HODGES

Death of Lovely Girl Mourned

When the community learned of the grave illness of Dorothy Ann Hodges and, was given no hope of her recovery, even those who had not known her acknowledged a certain grief, so general was the feeling of loss. Fifteen last February, she had been a frail but lover child unspoiled, winsome and beloved by family, schoolmates, old and young a­ like, she possessed; an inordinate quality for friendship. To the natural charm of youth was added sympathy and gentleness and. confiding trustfulness, and a beauty and strength of mind that eclipsed all her other attributes. She was ready for her junior year in high school.

The memorial tribute paid Dorothy Ann by the Rev. W. L. Robinson of Grenada, her former pastor, shows a deeper under­standing of her than any we could prepare. In conducting the Funeral services at the Boone­ville Methodist Church, of which she was a member, his tribute was as follows: “I never knew a person who loved life with deeper devotion nor drank of the cup of joy with greater awe than did Dorothy Ann. To her, life was a glorious adventure. It was one continuous thrill. Her brilliant mind made it possible for her to interpret life cor­rectly and to enjoy life to the fullest. Early in life she learned the significance of Jesus state­ment; I have come that you might have life and that you might have it more abundantly.” For such a life, there is no death. What we call death is but the gateway to life eternal. The Angel of Mercy came to Dorothy Ann, opened for her the door of the prison house of pain, released her beautiful spirit and placed her feet in the pore roomy spaces of the larger life.”

One of Dorothy Ann's out­standing characteristics was her unusual capacity for friendship. She knew full well the meaning of Shakespeare's statement, “The friends thou host and their adoption tried; grapple them to thy soul with hoops of steel.” Her friends never got away from her nor did they desire to get away. She also understood what the wise roan of old was talking about when he said: “He that bath friends, must show himself friendly.” She put friendship on the basis of sharing. Life was something to be shared with friend. The range of her friend­ships went all the way from many to old age. How she did enjoy the fellowship of her friends, and how her friends did appreciate her. Every per­son here counted it a high privilege to be numbered among her friends.

“Her greatest friend was God. She knew Him in a most intimate and personal way. She could not remember the day when she first became ac­quainted with Him. She grew up with the consciousness of His presence in her life. God was a real person to her. He was a Living Presence. She was inspired by His Spirit and her life was enriched by His com­panionship. Her life was con­secrated to Him. What a trio and what a climax, Life, Friend­ship and God. And Jesus said: “If it were not so, I would have told you.”

“In passing through this experience, it has helped me not a little to recall the inspir­ing words that were written by George Matheson: `O, Lord, that wilt not let me go, I rest my weary soul in thee; I give thee back the life I owe, that in thine ocean depths its flow may richer, fuller be. O. Light, that followest all my way, I yield my flickering torch to thee; my heart restores its borrowed ray, that in thy sunshine's blaze its day may brighter, fairer be. O, Jay, that seekest me through pain, I cannot close my heart.”

Ito thee, I trace the rainbow through the rain, and feel the promise is not vain that morn shall tearless be. O, Cross, thaw liftest up my head, I dare not ask to fly from thee', I lay in dust life's glory dead, and from the ground there blossoms red life that shall endless be.'

"Yesterday was her coronation day."

Dorothy Ann, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Hill Hodges of this place was stricken less than two weeks. She was taken to a neurosurgeon in Memphis and remained under his care until she died early Thursday morn­ing at the Baptist Hospital. Short before unconsciousness, overtook her Wednesday evening, she repeated John 3:16, which Bible passage was also read by the Rev. C. N. Ralston, Presbyterian: minister, assisting at the funeral service.

Her pastor, the Rev. Thad Ferrell, and the Rev. J. D. Thompson also assisted the Rev. W L. Robinson in conducting the last rites at five o'clock Fri­day afternoon. The church was thronged with sorrowing friends and relatives whose presence and beautiful floral tributes attested their sympathy. On section of pews had been re­served for the young people of the town, each one of whom felt an individual loss.

Pallbearers: Joe Young, H. P. Hoyle, O. L. Maxwell, Dave Wright, Ted Pees, H. G. Gangwer, Lloyd Downs and Archie Sims.

JOHN HOLLAWAY

Mr John Holloway

John Hollaway was born in Tennessee January 1, 1840, and died at the home of his son Jeff Hollaway, three miles east of Tupelo, April 28, 1908

At the age of 68 years. He moved to Prentiss County where he made his home until 1902 when he moved to Lee County where he resided until his death.

When the call for volunteers was issued in 1860 he was among the first to respond and served his county well throughout the war. He united with the Baptist Church in Prentiss County where he remained a member until God called him home. In early life he united in marriage to Miss Margaret Blassingame, who with several children proceeded him to the grave.

As a soldier he was brave, as a husband and father devoted, as a neighbor kind and true. To his children we can only say look up and make your calling and election sure. The remains were laid to reset in the Macedonia Cemetery. The funeral services were conducted by R.W. Fayette Rains.
