AUG. 14, 1940 HILLSBORO MIRROR
In Memory of Mrs. Will Schoonover
Mrs. Catherine Schoonover, widow of Will H. Schoonover passed from this world of sin and sorrow July 31, 1940 and was quietly laid away to rest August 1.
Mrs. Schoonover was born in Nashville Tennessee, coming to Texas at the age of 15 and has lived the greater part of her life in the Mc Cown Valley community. She married Will Schoonover about 50 years ago. He passed away June 23, 1935.
She has been a member of the Baptist Church since she was 14 years old. She was 70 years old at the time of her death.
She was stricken with paralysis about 13 days before her death and was very ill all this time, but she never complained, but bore her suffering so patiently.
I knew Mrs. Schoonover and all her family well and I can truthfully say that I do not know of a sweeter, more honest, kinder or harder working families than these. Mrs. Schoonover greatly admired such life and greatly admired her home and her family, always trying to teach them to live as God has taught us in his Blessed book.
Signed-----A friend, Mrs. Natley Williams
