Cora Headlee Obituary

Miss Cora, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. O. Headlee, of this place, died at their home Saturday evening, at ten o'clock. About two weeks before, she was taken ill with pneumonia and while at first her condition was considered alarming yet she was thought to have so far recovered as to be out of danger. On Friday night or Saturday morning she suddenly grew worse and death followed in but a few short hours. She was eighteen years of age and the eldest of the family of children. She was a bright, womanly young lady always ready to do a kind act or perform any duty devolving upon her. In the household she stood next to the mother in the care of affairs and among all her companions she was respected and loved. She was a member of the M. E. church and the Epworth League and was always found ready to do her Master's work. At the meeting of the League on next Sabbath evening a memorial services will be held, this having been the evening appointed for her to lead the meeting. She was a student in the high school course of the Union School and her death causes sadness among all the pupils and teachers. Short funeral services were conducted at the home on Monday evening and the body was taken to Mt. Morris on Tuesday for interment, services being held at the Baptist church at that place prior to the burial. They were conducted by Reverend Heazelton and Reverend Dr. Darby, of Waynesburg. In the sorrow which has befallen the family the deepest sympathy of all our people is extended.

Waynesburg Republican, May 4, 1899 (Greene County, PA)
