Aunt Ann Grey, mention of whose illness has been mentioned from
time to time, died at the home of her daughter-in-law, Aunt Nan Bradford,
Monday night, Aug. 22. Aunt Ann was 86 years old and had been a member
of the Baptist church for many years. She was born and reared in this
county and lived a true christian life. She is survived by three children;
one son, Nathan Compton of Blue, Okla., and two daughters, Mrs. Ellen
Gadberry of Lake City and Mrs. Harriett Holderfield of Leflore, Okla.
Aunt Ann was devoted to her home and family and was a good friend and
neighbor. To the bereaved we extend our sympathy.
Mrs. Ellen Gadberry and granddaughter, Miss Flossie, of Lake City,
who attended the bedside of the former's mother, Aunt Ann Grey for three
or four weeks, returned to their home recently. They were accompanied
home by Mrs. Gadberry's daughter, Mrs. Tom Huggins, and family of Shirley.
