Southern Christian Advocate issue dated September 18, 1930, Volume 94 #38 pg 3 col 3 from the Sandor Teszler Library of Wofford College:
Miss Lillian Bethea
Miss Lillian Bethea of Latta, aged 48, died in a Columbia Hospital, Monday morning, September 15. She suffered a serious operation last fall and since that time has been constantly a hospital patient. Recently she seemed much improved, but an acute heart attack suddenly took her from her friends and loved ones.
Miss Bethea was the daughter of the late David N Bethea and Alma Sellers Bethea of Latta. She was widely connected and well known and greatly admired and loved throughout the Dothan, Dillon, Latta, Mullins, and Marion sections of the Pee Dee Country. A lifelong member of the Methodist Church and active in its work she will be greatly missed in Church circles as she will in the D A R and U D C circles in which she was also active. She was, until recently, the historian of the Bethea family reunion and was an authority on the subject of the family history.
Surviving are her step-mother, Mrs Kate J Bethea, of Nichols, a brother, S Legare Bethea of San Antonio, Texas, and a sister, Mrs Clarence Monroe of Marion. Funeral announcements had not been made at the time the Advocate goes to press. Awaiting the arrival of her brother from Texas, the body remains at the Dunbar Funeral Home in Columbia.
