Miss Kate McGilvery died in this city Thursday, morning at 5 o’clock at the home of her niece, Mrs. G.W. Hodges after a two weeks illness.
Miss McGilvery was born August 15, 1833 in Moore County, North Carolina. At the time of her death, April 5, 1916, she was 82 years, seven months and 21 days old. The greater part of her life was spent in the state of Arkansas, but the last four years she has made her home in this city, during which time she has formed the acquaintance of a large number of our people, and the same feeling of love, exists in the breast of all who have had the pleasure of meeting her.
At the age of 16, she was converted and united with the Presbyterian Church and since that time she has lived a consecrated life and has been an active church worker.
She had a brother who was a missionary to India and died in that country.
She was the last of a large family to be called home to the Father who doeth all things well.
The funeral services will be held by Rev. W.B. Gilliam at the Methodist Church, Friday afternoon at 1 o’clock.
The Star extends condolences to the bereaved.
