A Splendid Christian Character Passes Away – The news of the sudden death of Mrs. Emma Hall, wife of Mr. Wm. E. Hall, which occurred at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Hall Sherrill, in Pensacola, Fla., Monday, was a great shock to her relatives and many friends in this community. Mrs. Hall’s remains were brought to Covington Tuesday morning at 9:20 o’clock and the funeral services, conducted by Rev. R. P. Walker, were held at 10:30 o’clock in the First Presbyterian church, after which the interment took place in Mt. Carmel cemetery. Mrs. Hall and her husband had been visiting Mrs. Sherrill in Pensacola for some time. Her death was due to an attack of paralysis and her illness was only of very short duration. The deceased was formerly Miss Emma Adams and was a native of Statesville, N. C., although the greater part of her life had been spent in this county. She is survived by her husband, one daughter, mentioned above, and by four sons, Mr. Ed. Hall, of York, S. C.; Leander and Junius Hall, of Pensacola, Fla., and Clarence Hall, of Saranac Lake, N. Y. These have the sympathy of their many friends in this community over the loss of a fond and devoted wife and mother. Mrs. Hall had been a devoted and consistent member of the Presbyterian church during the greater part of her life and was a sweet and gentle Christian character, beloved by all who knew her on account of her many noble qualities and she will be greatly missed in this community.
