      Death of Mrs. H. M. Coffey.

      Mrs. H. M. Coffey, mother of Mrs. D. A. Anderson and Mrs. G. H. Collins, died at the Anderson home in Davis Saturday evening at 8 o'clock. The greater part of her long life was spent at Abbeville, Miss., where many of her relatives still live. Failing health caused her to break up housekeeping three years ago, and she came to Davis to make her home with Mrs. D. A. Anderson. She reached a ripe old age, being 80 years old April 28, 1915. For two years she had been an invalid and confined to her bed.

      Early in life she joined the Methodist church and remained a member until the day of her death. When she was active and in good health she was a great reader, and took great delight in reading about her church and its history and its doctrines, and was also well informed as to current events.

      She was one of those quiet, modest Southern women who believed her greatest mission in the world was to maintain a true home and train her children to be good citizens. How well she succeeded in her life's purpose, one had only to know her home and the children who went out from it.

      She is survived by seven children - four sons and three daughters: M. F. Coffey, A. H. Coffey and M. H. Coffey, all of Myrtle, Miss.; B. B. Coffey of Nashville, Tenn.; Mrs. J. D. Johnson of Memphis, Tenn; Mrs. G. H. Collins of Oklahoma City; and Mrs. D. A. Anderson of Davis.

      Sunday afternoon at the Anderson home simple but impressive religious services were conducted by Rev. J. G. Blackwood, pastor of Methodist church, after which her body was laid to rest in Green Hill Cemetery.
