Cora Towery McConnell Obituary
Cora Towery McConnell died Tuesday Nov. 19th from an attack of influenza followed by double pneumonia. She was the twenty-year-old daughter of C. H. and Missouri E. McConnell, very highly esteemed people of the Shady Grove section.
She is survived by her parents, two brothers, Luther, who lives in New Mexico and Henry of this county; also five sisters, Mrs. Harvey Vanhooser, Mrs. Henry Tudor, Mrs. Harvey Lowry and two younger sisters Lera and Reba. She was a member of Blackburn church and a devoted Christian worker.
Her remains were laid to rest in the Shady Grove cemetery.
Her kind and loving disposition won friends for her wherever she went. She taught her home school for two years and was well beloved all over the section. Though she is gone, she is not forgotten. Her beautiful life is a memorial to be found in the hearts of all those with whom she came in contact. Her many friends and the "Press" extend sympathy to the sorrowing hearts of the bereaved family.
