Estimable Woman Dead

Mrs. Mary Brent Bradshaw, widow of the late Clayborne Bradshaw, died at the home of her sister, Mrs. Burdette Burks, in Burgin, Tuesday night. She had been in ill health for some time and last fall passed under an operation at the Danville Hospital, hoping to regain her health, but complications developed which proved fatal. She was a most estimable Christian woman who was greatly beloved by all who knew her. For many years she had been a member of Shawnee Run church, and her funeral was held there yesterday afternoon at 3 o’clock, conducted by her pastor, Rev. W. D. Moore, and the interment was in the Shawnee Run cemetery. She leaves no children but has a number of relatives throughout the county.
