Mrs. W.B. Buffington, aged 68 years, died last Tuesday afternoon at her home in Glade district.

The funeral and burial took place at Timber Ridge church last Thursday afternoon. Mrs. Buffington exemplified those Christian graces in her life that lend a helping influence in life and leave a shining example after death for those who knew and loved her to follow. The community and county loses a noble woman and Christian character in her death.

She is survived by her husband and twelve children, viz: J.B., of Gainesville; C.E., W.J. and Herbert, of Atlanta; L.A. of Lineville, Ala.; Mrs. J. D. Hawkins, Mrs. Edd Hawkins, Mrs. Emory Buffington, Mrs. O.D. Buffington and Miss Ina Buffington, all of this county; Mrs. J.D. Martin, of Athens; Mrs. C.M. Bolding, of Flowery Branch.
