Mrs. Susan Curd, a venerable and beloved woman of the Burgin section, passed away Sunday afternoon after a lingering illness at the home of her son, Mr. Luther T. Curd, where she had lived for a number of years. Mrs. Curd was first stricken with paralysis several years ago while returning from the funeral of her grandson. Since then her health has never been robust. She was a splendid Christian woman, a worthy daughter of her venerated father, Rev. Strother Cook, who was a prominent Baptist minister of the Burgin section for many years. Early in life she united with the Shawnee Run Baptist Church and has “truly walked in the faith of her Lord” ever since. She is survived by two children, Mr. L. T. Curd, of Burgin, and a daughter, Mrs. J. W. Ison, of Norwood, Ohio. Five sisters also survive, Mrs. J. W. Voris, Mrs. Elizabeth Litteral, Mrs. S. D. King, Mrs. Emma Rose and Mrs. Julie Stone, and one brother, Mr. James Curd, of Mississippi. The funeral was held at Shawnee Run Church Tuesday afternoon, conducted by her pastor, Rev. W. D. Moore, and the interment was at Shawnee Run Cemetery.
