OBITUARY--Oda Faye Hogue

Oda Faye Hogue was born in Greenwood, July 2, 1899, and died in the hospital at Marshfield, January 27, 1915. She was taken to the hospital January 21, suffering with what seemed to be blood poison in her face. the disease did not prove to be blood poison, and during the six days that she was in the hospital, was a puzzle to both doctors and nurses. Through all her sickness she did not suffer pain and she was patient, hopeful and cheerful to the end.

The funeral was held Saturday afternoon at 1:30 from the Methodist church of which she was a member on probation. The service was conducted by the pastor who was assisted by Rev. Allard of the Greenwood Circuit. Special music was rendered by a mixed quartette. Six of her girl friends were honorary pall bearers while the active pall bearers were young men chosen from among her schoolmates. The Freshman class of the High School of which she was member, attended in a body, and the large flag at the school was kept at half-mast during the service. The church was crowded with people who came to pay their last respects to her whom they had known as a kind, thoughtful and loving friend.

She is survived by her four grandparents, her parents, two sisters, two brothers, and numerous other relatives besides a host of friends.

Gone before How sad the tidings
Heavy on our hearts it fell'
Yet we know, for God has told us,
That he doeth all things well.
Go before Our hearts are bleeding
O'er the spoil that death hath won.
May we in this hour of sadness
Calmly say, "Thy will be done."
