Angeline Conner has lived over fifty years in this vicinity and was well known as a devoted mother and a good neighbor and friend. She was for many years a devoted member of the Presbyterian church at Union Hill, where she seventeen years ago followed her husband to his burial place. Her former pastor, the Rev. A. S. Buchanon, conducted the last sad rites. She was a member of Porthenia Lodge, Daughters of Rebekah and was a faithful member of that institution. Her life was full of good deeds that are not necessary to record for they will ever live in the hearts and minds of those who knew her best. The funeral took place Feb. 13, at the Christian church at 10:30 and the burial was beside her husband long gone before.
