Sunny Side News

The community was shocked to learn of the death of MRS. JOE BOB SOUTH, which occurred Sunday a.m. at 11 o'clock. Henrietta was such a sweet girl. We extend our sympathy to her husband and two little children.

August 16, 1923


MRS. JOE BOB SOUTH died quite suddenly at her home here after an illness of only a few days duration, she died of Colitis. MR. & MRS. SOUTH were two of the best people that Poagville afforded, always kind and considerate of others and doing little things of kindness.

MRS. SOUTH was quite a young lady having just entered her twenties being only twenty-two years of age. She was married to JOE BOB in the year of 1918. She leaves a husband and two babies, a father and mother and several brothers and sisters, and scores of friends to mourn for her.

But remember dear friends there is a world where we meet, to part no more.

The writer extends his sympathy to the bereaved family.
