Grandma Caraway died on Easter Sunday, and was laid to rest in the cemetery at the old Alabama burying place on Monday. Truly a good Christian woman has gone from our midst. She had passed the four score age “the young may die, the old have to die”. Blessed are those that die it the Lord. See was a great sufferer as she was convinced to her bed for the last three years caused from a fall. She was patient, courageous until the end. She lay in one position theses three years.
