Mrs. McCormick, despite her ripe old age, had enjoyed fairly good health almost up until the last and enjoyed her faculties to keep her young in spirit. She had often visited her daughter, in Plano.

The memory of this sainted mother will live long not only with members of her family, but with a host of friends as well. We join in extending deepest sympathy to all those left to mourn her passing.
Conducted the services were Rev. W. Prevo and Dr. Fred A. White
