Mrs Annie Stackhouse Montgomery

Mrs Annie Stackhouse Montgomery, relict of the late W J Montgomery, of Marion, died at Washington, DC., Friday morning, June 3, after a very brief illness. Mrs Montgomery had gone to Washington for a visit to her son, T Carlisle Montgomery, and up to a few hours before her passing she was in her usual good state of health. Some time Wednesday, she became alarmingly ill, was taken to a hospital in the nation's capital city, for an operation, following which, she quickly succumbed.

The body was brought to Marion, Saturday morning and all day life-long friends of this good woman called at the beautiful home on Harlee Street, to pay their last call upon her. Expressions of sorrow at her passing were heard at every hand.

Sunday morning funeral services were conducted at the Montgomery home by Rev L L Bedenbaugh, pastor of the First Methodist church, of which the deceased was a life-long and devoted member, and the Rev Walter I Herbert, a former pastor. A great throng of sorrowing friends and relatives attended the services at the home and later gathered at the grave and silently covered the bier under a mound of lovely flowers.

Mrs Annie Stackhouse Montgomery, daughter of the late Col E T Stackhouse and Annie Fore Stackhouse, was 68 years of age at the time of her death. Early in life she married William Joseph Montgomery, of Marion, and thus spent most of her life as a valued citizen of this city. In civic matters, she was always deeply interested; in the local chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy she was a leader, and found great joy in honoring the Old Soldiers, and in preparing for the Memorial Day exercises at Marion in their honor.

She was a noble woman; a splendid wife and help-meet; a tender devoted mother, and a friend of man.

Mrs Montgomery is survived by three daughters, Miss Mabel Montgomery, Mrs Horace L Tilghman, and Mrs Katie Stackhouse Broadnax; two sons, Messrs. Thomas Carlisle Montgomery, of Washington, DC., and John Kenly Montgomery of Havana, Cuba; two sisters, Mesdames N L Alford of Marion, and T C Covington of Latta, and two brothers ...
