DEATH TAKES MRS. WILLIAMS
Funeral Services Were Held At the Columbia Christian Church Tuesday
Mrs. Z.T. Williams, one of Columbia's most respected and beloved older citizens, died late Monday afternoon following a three-months illness. Though her death was not unexpected, due to the seriousness of her condition, her passing cast a shadow of sorrow over the entire community.
Before her marriage Mrs. Williams was Miss Mary Margaret Smith. She was born October 18, 1859 in Warren County, Ohio, about 50 miles north of Cincinnati. She was reared in a Christian home, from earliest childhood, having the advantages of schools and active religious work. She confessed faith in Christ and was baptized into the Christian Church at nine years of age.
He education was acquired at the Waynesville High School, Warren County, Ohio; at the Teachers' Training School of Holbrook's Normal University and Butler College, near Indianapolis. After finishing her education she taught for a number of years. She did special church work for some time and was then called into rescue work, which she continued until 1902. At that time, Mrs. Williams, then Miss Smith, came to Glasgow, Ky., where her parents were living.
In 1904 she met Rev. Z.T. Williams and they were married, December 28, 1904, making their home at Montpelier, Adair County. In 1906 they moved to Columbia, Rev. Williams becoming pastor of the Christian Church. He also preached for other churches in the county and did evangelistic work throughout this section of Kentucky until his death in January, 1923.
Mrs. Williams cheerfully and heartily engaged in her husband's work and their lives together were unusually happy because of their congeniality in the work of the Lord. Since 1906 her life has been living among the people of Columbia and neighboring churches, all of whom she was interested in and loved. She greatly appreciated the kindness and love shown her by the people of her husband's churches and friends of other denominations. Mrs. Williams is survived by the following: four step-children: Mrs. Lillie Epperson, of Corbin, Ky.; Luther Williams, Cave City, Ky.; Rev. Lawrence Williams, of Lampass, Texas, and J.A. Williams, Hutchison, Kansas; one brother, Dr. J.H.O. Smith, Oklahoma City, and a niece, Mrs. E.H. Fishback, Anderson, Ind.
Funeral services were held at the Columbia Christian Church Tuesday afternoon at 2:30, conducted by Rev. A.H. Baugh, of Hustonville, with Rev. H. Gordon Bennett assisting. The active pallbearers were: Henry Moore, Frank Callison, Charlie Hood, Robert Hutchison, J.S. Knifley and P.P. Dunbar. Honorary pall bearers: S.C. Neat, W.I. Ingram, Ores Barger, L.C. Winfrey, Eros Barger, W.R. Myers, G.R. Reed, Horace Jeffries, Braxton Massie and Bruce Montgomery.
