Mrs Cora Cottingham, 81, of Latta

Latta---(special)--Mrs Cora Stackhouse Cottingham, 81, died at her home Wednesday morning after declining health for the past 22 years.

Funeral services will be conducted at 3pm Thursday from the home by the Rev E S Dunbar of the Latta Methodist Church, where she was a member, assisted by the Rev George S Tabor. Interment will be in Magnolia Cemetery. "Miss Cora" requested, before her death, that in lieu of flowers, contributions be sent to the Methodist Home for the Aged in Orangeburg.

Mrs Cottingham was the daughter of the late William Bethea and Josephine Bethea Stackhouse of Little Rock. She was a graduate of the class of 1895 of Columbia College. She spent most of her life in Cullman, Alabama, but upon the death of her husband, Dr W J Cottingham, 12 years ago, she returned to Latta. Although in declining health for the past several years, she remained interested in religious educational and social activities about her. She was generous with her support to Epworth Children's Home in Columbia and the Home for the Aged in Orangeburg. One of her recent gifts to the Children's Home was an entrance gate and a brick fence around the grounds. "Miss Cora" gave an annual award to the winning boy and girl in Latta High School Declamation Contest.

Survivors include one sister, Mrs Blanche C Major of Latta; one sister-in-law, Mrs Dora Stackhouse Bethea of Dillon; one brother-in-law, J F Rogers of Latta; two nieces, Mrs Steve Williamson of Latta and Mrs Stokes Brooks of Mullins, and four nephews, Dr R C Major of Augusta, Ga., W E Smith of Greensboro, NC., W B Stackhouse of Dillon, and H F Stackhouse of Conway.
