Obituary of

Mrs. A. B. Carmichael

The Dillon Herald, Dillon, South Carolina
February 19, 1925, Vol. 36, No. 27

Aged Couple Divided by Death

The Gaddy's Mill section was shocked Sunday morning to learn that Mrs. A. B. Carmichael, aged 76, had been found dead in her bed. The discovery was made by Mr. A. B. Carmichael, 86 years old husband of the deceased, who awoke at his usual time to find the spirit of the woman who had been a loyal helpmeet, through 52 years of married life had flown while she slept.

Mrs. Carmichael had been an invalid for about ten years, bearing her suffering patiently and cheerfully. Her beautiful nature gained and kept a large circle of warm friends who mourn her loss. She was the daughter of Hardy Gaddy and died a short distance from the old home place.

Interment took place at the cemetery near the Pee Dee Methodist Church of which she was a faithful and active member until paralysis rendered her unable to attend services regularly. The services were conducted by her pastor, the Rev. Mr. Stephenson, assisted by Pastors Atkins and Clyde. The following nephews of Mrs. Carmichael acted as pallbearers; S. V. Lane, Fred Lane, J. P. Lane, Lawrence McIntyre, and Thomas Weitus, Fin and Clifford Gaddy and T. J. Monroe.

A large concourse of sorrowing friends were present at the funeral Monday morning and the grave was covered with beautiful floral tributes.

Beside her husband, Mrs. Carmichael is survived by one sister, Mrs. R. L. Lane, and two sons, G. L. and C. L. Carmichael.
