    MRS. M.E. KENDALL DIES AT HOME HERE

    Mrs. Martha Elizabeth Kendall, age 65, life-long resident of thiscounty, died at her home here Saturday evening after an illness ofseveral months. During the large part of six months she has beenconfined to her bed.

    Funeral services were held at the Methodist church here Sundayafternoon, conducted by the Rev. A.W. Hamilton, pastor, assisted bythe Rev. Harold D. Sadler of Little Rock and the Rev. H.W. Jean,pastor of the local Baptist Church. Interment was in the family lot atMoore's Church cemetery.

    She is survived by two sons, Ed Kendall of Rison and David H. Kendallof Granite City, Ill; three daughters, Mrs. O.B. Steger and Mrs. C.E.Harrison of Rison and Mrs. C.O. Moore of Pine Bluff; and one sister,Mrs. R.M. Hamilton of Rison. Her children and sister were at herbedside when she died.

    Mrs. Kendall, who before her marriage to Chas E. Kendall in January1886, was Miss Martha Elizabeth McSwain. She was born in this countySept. 8, 1863. When a young girl, she united with the Methodist churchand continued a faithful and devout member until her death.

    In his discourse, Rev. Sadler, who until recently was her pastor, saidthat he had never known a Christian more devoted to her church and tothe principles for which it stands than Mrs. Kendall. He stated thatno member of the church was more loyal to its pastor or more willingto perform any task for the church than she.

    For the past 16 years she had made her home in Rison and perhaps noother citizen of the city was more universally loved and respected.Mr. Kendall died 12 years ago.
