    Death of an Estimable Lady

    Mrs. Fanny Lyon, A Former Resident of Columbia, Passes Away at Glasgow.

    THE INTERMENT AT THIS PLACE.

    While it was known here that the subject of this writing was lying in a critical condition at the home of her daughter, Mrs. J. C. Hutchinson, Glasgow, Ky., the intelligence of her death, recieved last Monday morning, was a shock to this entire community. The call came at 3 o'clock a.m.
    The deceased was born and reared in Columbia and was a lady of high Christian character, whose influence for good was known in every community in which she resided. But fewer women possessed a stronger intellect, and the Baptist church to which she has been attached since early girlhood loses one of its influential and devoted members.
    When about twenty years of age she was married to Mr. James D. Lyon, in this place and of this union there are three living children- Mrs. Ida Hutchinson, Glasgow, Messrs. W. R. and R. J. Lyon, Campbellsville. Her husband preceded her to the grave June 26, 1882.
    During the life of her husband the deceased lived a few years in Lebanon and since his death she has resided the greater portion of her time with her son, Mr. W. R. Lyon, Campbellsville.
    The deceased was 65 years old the 9th of last October, and while she was never very strong she was in her usual health until the first of last week when she became a victim of pheumonia, ending her earthly existence.
    The remains reached Columbia this (Tuesday) at 12 o'clock, the cortege stopping at the home of Rev. J. C. Cook, where many friends called to view the remains, and to extend the hand of sympathy to those who have been so sorely bereft.
    At 1 o'clock the funeral services were held in the Baptist church, conducted by the pastor of the deceased, Rev. Gatton, of Campbellsville, assisted by Eld. W. K. Azbill and Z. T. Williams, this place. At the conclusion all that was mortal of this good woman was laid to rest beside her husband in the city cemetery.
    To the children, who have given up their dearest friend, keep your eyes on the Star of Bethlehem; there will be another meeting.
    The passing of Mrs. Lyon removes the last member of the family of Mr. R. L. Jones, who in his life time, was one of Columbia's highly respected and substantial citizens.
