Miss Susie Lindsey

Miss Susie Lindsey, 79, died at the home of her niece, Mrs. R. B. Lefler here in Clinton, early Saturday morning Aug. 10, 1940, following an illness of several weeks due to the infirmities of her advanced years. She was born at Aberden, Miss., Feb. 22, 1861, the daughter of John and Betony Lindsey, who settled at Scotland, Van Buren County, in 1866.

Following the death of her parents Miss Lindsey continued to make her home at Scotland until 1923 when she came to Clinton to make her home with her niece, Mrs. Lefler. She made a profession of religion in very early life, associating herself with the Baptist Church. Her entire was in keeping with the faith she professed.

Funeral services were conducted by the Rev. Claud Jenkins, Baptist minister, assisted by Rev. Lester Weaver pastor Clinton M. E. Church. Interment took place at Pleasant Grove Cemetery, near Scotland Sunday afternoon in the presence of many sorrowing friends and relatives. This was a good woman and those who knew her best have no doubt that she will reap the reward her life so richly deserved.
