    In Memoriam.
    On Saturday, May 18, 1918, at one o'clock p.m., at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. Joe Ford, Mrs. Margaret S. Atkinson, widow of the late W. S. Atkinson, passed away. Surrounded by her entire family, from the day she was stricken with paralysis, Monday, the 13th inst., she received every attention that lies within human power. Skilled physicians and nurses attended her; friends were there, but all to no avail. The hour for her going had come, and as in life, hers had been the ministering hands to smooth the brow, her children tenderly and lovingly hovered over her, day and night watching for some look or word of consciousness. If this mother could have chosen the setting for this last scene in the drama of her life, we feel assured that it would have been just as it was. There is no love no unselfish as mother love, but Mrs. Atkinson's pride in and for her children, and the pure, self-sacrificing love she had for them were often spoken of by her friends, and it was nothing unusual to hear said, of her, "There was never a better mother."
    Mrs. Atkinson lived her life by doing good to others, with no hope of reward here, for she sought out those who were needy indeed.
    Although, only sixty-two years old Mrs. Atkinson had accomplished more than most women much older. She had led an active life always, and her ambition was to be active until she died. This she was, and had had almost no sickness of any moment, until this stroke, which took her off.
    For years, Mrs. Atkinson has had the care of her aged mother, Mrs. Sallie Smith, and her tenderness to that mother was as sweet as the mother's for her babe.
    Just a few years back, the late W. S. Atkinson died suddenly from a stroke of apoplexy, and the shock of his death had its effect upon the companion left behind, and since that time, she had not been her same, cheerful self, but her best efforts were put forth in the attempt to be.
    For some time, there was some cause for alarm, lest she suffer this stroke, and every precaution had been taken, a specialist consulted, and her case fully diagnosed, but the tie which bound together this devoted family is broken, the mother gone, and it but remains to these four noble women, her daughters, Mrs. L. T. Fox of Derma, Mrs. Tilden Pryor of Calhoun City, Mrs. Joe Ford and Mrs. V. B. Philpot of Houston; her sons, Will S. Jr., and Edd, two substantial citizens of Pickens, Mississippi, to carry on the life she has so well planned out for them.
    The remains were laid to rest beneath a wealth of flowers, at the local cemetery, after an appropriate funeral service at the Baptist Church. Rev. J. W Gillon officiating.
    Thus ends here, the work on earth of one of the noble women, the aged mother, the staunch friend and the faithful neighbor. But never will memory cease to hold in sweet reverence, these recollections of a life of unselfishness and lvoe for God and her fellowman. To the bereaved, the Times-Post joins the entire community in extending sympathy. [from the Times Post, Houston, Mississippi, Friday, May 24, 1918, page 5]
