It was a sorrow to many here who knew Mrs. Albert G. Vivion to learn of her death at her home in Greenwood, Ind., last Friday. She was taken ill about December 19 with a nervous breakdown, and gradually grew worse until the end came. Mrs. Vivion was a woman of a bright and cheery dispo­sition, a friend to everybody and always ready to help another in whatever way she could. These characteristics made her a general favorite here where she made her home until the family moved to Indiana some years ago. Mrs. Vivion was a woman of much artistic talent and gained considerable note as a portrait painter while residing here, and also after moving to her new home. She was a member of the Christian church in this city. Her remains were brought back to Harrodsburg for interment in the family lot at Spring Hill Cemetery. They were accompanied by Mr. Albert G. Vivion, Sr., and Mr. Albert G. Viv­ion, Jr.  Mr. and Mrs. Clarence E. Wilkinson, of Louisville, were also here to attend the funeral, which was held Sunday afternoon at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Grant Vivion. Rev. L. E. Sellers, pastor of the Christian church, officiated. Surviving her are her husband and the following children: Mrs. C. E. Wilkinson and Mrs. R. G. Pyle, of Louisville; Mrs. D. W. Sheek, Mr. A. G. Vivion, Jr., and Miss Lillian Vivion, of Greenwood, Indiana.

Friends here were shocked and grieved to learn of the death of Mr. Albert G. Vivion, Sr., Tuesday night at his home in Greenwood, Indiana. Mr. Vivion was in Harrodsburg just three weeks ago to attend the funeral of his wife, accompanying her remains to this city. Her death was on February 3 and just as the month closed about midnight his spirit left earth to join her. Mr. Vivion was almost 70 years of age, and his health had not been robust for some years. His sight was greatly impaired from cataracts and his hearing had almost left him. A week ago he took a severe cold which developed into double pneumonia which caused his death. His brother, Mr. Grant Vivion, was summoned to his bedside several days ago, and accompanied the remains to this city, together with Mr. Albert G. Vivion, Jr., and Miss Lillian Vivion.

Mr. Vivion was a native of Harrodsburg, the son of Albert Vivion and Sarah Mullins Vivion. For many years he con­ducted a large dry goods business here with Mr. Grant Vivion, the firm being known as Vivion Brothers. He was an active member in the local Christian church, and a man of genial personality who was liked by all. His funer­al will be held this (Friday) afternoon at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Grant Vivion, on Lexing­ton avenue, at 2 o’­clock, conducted by Rev. L. E. Sellers, and the interment will be beside his wife in Spring Hill Cemetery. He is survived by Mrs. Clarence F. Wilkinson of Louisville; Mrs. D. W. Sheek, Mr. A. G. Vivion, Miss Lillian Vivion, of Greenwood, Ind., and Mrs. R. G. Pyle, Louisville.
