Mrs G L Carmichael

Mrs Blanche McKenzie passed away at 10:45 Saturday night, December 13, 1930, at her home near Gaddy's Mill, Dillon County. She had been in poor health for some time but had recently been better and friends and relatives were shocked when the end came suddenly. She was born August 24, 1882, in what was then Marion County. She was the daughter of John and Anne Gaddy McKenzie. She was edcated at her home school, Union, and Flora McDonald College, Red Springs, NC. As a girl, she was beautiful and attractive, and grew in all the attractive graces of a beautiful life to the end. On December 28, 1909, she was married to Gaddy L Carmichael, of Dillon County. Together they lived happily to the end on the old home plantation. She joined the Methodist Church in early youth, was a quiet earnest disposition, and lived a faithful and beautiful Christian life. Her body was laid to rest in the Regan cemetery on December 15, after services conducted by her pastor, Rev J P Attaway, and Rev W E Clyde, of the Baptist church. The large concourse of relatives and friends, and the many beautiful flowers placed on her grave bore silent testimony to the high esteem in which she was held. Besides her husband she leaves one son, Marvin L Carmichael, her father, John McKenzie of Gaddy's Mill, two brothers, J R McKenzie, of Gaddy's Mill, and Dr Ernest McKenzie of Beckley, W Va., and one sister, Mrs J T Hankins, of Lake View, SC.
