THE WESTERN STAR, 23 September 1910
Obituary of CLIFFIE E. SMITH

One of the saddest deaths which it has been our duty to chronicle for some time was that of Mrs. Cliffie E. Smith at 2:45 a.m. on last Wednesday, September 21, at Mr. and Mrs. Smith's home, on one of Jacob Reiss' farms a few miles southwest of Coldwater. She had been sick for several weeks, but her condition was not considered serious until about a week ago. She was in a stupor and unconscious for several days previous to her death. The news of her death caused profound sorrow to spread among her many friends, many of whom did not know of her critical condition. The constant attention of loving friends and relatives and the best of medical skill proved unavailing in the attempt to save her life.

Deceased was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J.A. Jarnagin and was well known, especially in the southwestern part of the county. She was born and raised in this county, the date of her birth being December 5, 1892. On March 25, 1908 she was married to Lloyd C. Smith, who, with a daughter, Lillie, about 18 months old, survive her. Mrs. Smith was a
devoted wife and mother, always kind and cheerful, and was held in high esteem by all who knew her. She had lived a consistent christian life, having for several years been a member of the Baptist church and during the past year was a member of the Christian church of this city. Her untimely death calls forth the sincere sympathy of the entire community for her bereaved relatives. Funeral services were held at the Christian church in this city at 4 p.m. on Wednesday and were in charge of the
pastor, Elder E.W. Schenk. A large number of friends and neighbors attended the services. The floral offerings were very beautiful. Interment was made in the Coldwater cemetery.
Card of Thanks.
We desire to express our heartfelt thanks to the many kind neighbors and friends who rendered us assistance and gave words of consolation dulring our recent sad bereavement. -Lloyd C. Smith, Frank Smith and family and J.A. Jarnagin and family.
