Death of Mrs. Bettis

Mrs. Margaret Bettis died at Dr. McChords Hospital in Lebanon on Wednesday of last week after a long illness.  Prior to her marriage she was Miss Margaret Robertson and a daughter of the late William J. and Lucy Robertson.  She was born near Springfield on April 12, 1863, and grew to womanhood here.  Funeral services were conducted at the Presbyterian Church on last Friday by Rev. R. E. C. Lawson, and burial was in Cemetery Hill.  She is survived by the following, Messrs. Charles D. and William K. Robertson, Mrs. Sallie Selecman, Mrs. Mollie Mayes, of this county, and Mrs. Maria Booker, of Little Rock, Arkansas.

Mrs. Bettis was a very estimable woman, being kind and charitable to all.  She was beloved by a large circle of friends who mourn their loss.  She was a member of the Presbyterian Church and took an active interest in all church work.
