Mrs. Susie Quattlebaum

Mrs. Susie Quattlebaum, aged 48, beloved wife of E.E. Quattlebaum, died at her home on Culpepper mountain at 7 o'clock Thursday morning, July 18, following an illness of four days. Interment took place at the Quattlebaum Cemetery Friday, funeral services being conducted by the Rev. W. B. Davenport, the song service being led by Roy Porter.

Mrs. Quattlebaum, whose maiden name was Rhoades, was married to E. E. Quattlebaum in 1906. To their union nine children were born eight of whom survive, as follows: Warren, John, Carl, Lorene, Lela, Oma, Hazel and Connie. One step-son, Edward and one step-daughter, Beckie, now Mrs. Jim Gilliam, also survive. Besides her immediate family Mrs. Quattlebaum is survived by three sisters, Mrs. Rosa Parks and Mrs. Ella McDaniel of Formosa, and Mrs. Ebb Shipp of Missouri, and one brother, Irvin Rhoades.

Mrs. Quattlebaum had been a member of the Missionary Baptist Church for more than 30 years, or since her girlhood, and lived a life befitting a true and devout Christian. She was a kind and affectionate mother and a true and loyal companion and enjoyed the confidence and respect of all who knew her. In her passing her husband and children suffer an irreparable loss. They have the profound sympathy of many truly sorrowing friends.
