In Memoriam


In memory of Mrs. Mary E. Blaney. The death angel entered the home of Mrs. C. C. Beavens, Houston Heights, this city, February 21, calling home Mrs. Harry E. Blaney, an aunt of Mrs. Beavens.

Mrs. Blaney was one of the pioneers of Houston, having lived to a ripe old age. Beloved and respected by all who knew her, she became a member of Oran M. Roberts Chapter, U.D.C., when first organized, and as she was no longer able to be an active member, she was made an honorary member, she was made an honorary one.

Therefore, be it

Resolved, that O. M. Roberts Chapter and Texas Division U.D.C., has lost a beloved member and friend, and though she has traveled into that far country and crossed the mystic river we call death, we still in memory hold her dear as one who will not be forgotten; therefore be it

Resolved, that to her nieces and other members of the bereaved family we offer loving sympathy. May the Comforter be with them and His mercy sustain them.

“Over the river they beckon to us,
Loved ones who have crossed to the father short.”

Mrs. Wharton Bates,
Chairman Resolution, Texas Division, U.D.C.

Mrs. Hattie Raguet, Mrs. Mary Manlove, Mrs. Mittie Whatley, Mrs. Faith Ledford, Mrs. J. W. Norwood, Mrs. Charles Greenwood, Mrs. Thomas Yarrell, Mrs. B. G. Pratte, Committee.
