Mrs. E.B. Washington Dead

The remains of Mrs. E.B. Washington, formerly of this city, but lately of Rays Mill, were brought up to Valdosta from Pinetta, Fla., Tuesday and was carried to Hahira on the 11 o’clock train for internment in the family square at that place.
Mrs. Washington’s death was a peculiarly sad one and came after an illness of only two days.  She left home several days ago to go to Cherry Lake, Fla., to spend some time, accompanied by her little children, one of them three years old and the other one about six months.  She was in apparently the best of health until she reached Pinetta, Fla., when she was taken ill and it was found that her illness was of a very serious nature.
Her husband, who is the marshal of Rays Mill and was formerly a deputy sheriff here, was notified of her illness Sunday and summoned to her bedside. He reached Pinetta Monday morning and her death occurred about 9 o’clock.
The deceased was formerly a Miss Dickerson, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. D. J. Dickerson, of Cecil.  She was well known throughout the northern part of this county and was very popular among all who knew her.  Her death, coming so suddenly, will be a great shock to her many friends.  -Valdosta Times.
