    DECEASED WAS SISTER-IN-LAW OF LATE CHAS. BUSH, McKINNEY MERCHANT>



    Miss Fanny Smith, aged 76, died at the Eastern Star Masonic home at Arlington Saturday afternoon, August 13, at 4 o'clock after an illness of about 3 months.

    The deceased was born in Cornersville, Tennessee, January 31, 1851, and came to Texas in 1876 and settled in McKinney with her parents when she was twenty-five years old. Her parents were Mr. and Mrs. John H. Smith who lived in McKinney for a number of years conducting a hotel located near the H.& T.C. and the L. R. & N. railway depot. Her father, John H. Smith, died in McKinney, September 18, 1891, or thirty-six years ago. Her mother died in McKinney twenty years ago. Both were buried in Pecan Grove cemetery.

    The deceased called McKinney her home for fifty-one years, although for the last ten months, she had been living in the Eastern Star home at Arlington. She was a prominent member of the Eastern Star and a past matron of the McKinney lodge. She was also a Rebekah and a member of the First Baptist church of McKinney.

    She was a good business woman, generous in spirit, with a sympathetic heart and a helping hand for all those about her who needed her sympaty or stood in need of her assistance in any way. She was modest, energetic and optimistic, whose life was filled with good works wrought in her own unobtrusive and modest way.

    She is survived by one brother, C. S. Smith of Sherman and by one sister, Mrs. Mollie Bush of Dallas. She is also survived by two nieces, Mrs. R. H. Brooks, 4410 Hartford street, Dallas, and Mrs. Catherine Stevens, also of Dallas. These relatives were all present at the interment in McKinney. Other Dallas friends also accompanied the remains to McKinney.

    The deceased was a sister-in-law of the late Charles Bush who for many years conducted the Charles Bush Bookstore in McKinney and who was one of our most highly esteemed citizens and Masons who passed away at his home in McKinney on 21 April 1911.

    Funeral services were conducted at the Masonic Undertaking Home in McKinney at 10:30 o'clock this (Monday) morning and interment followed in the family burying plot in Pecan Grove cemetery. Dr. M. E. Hudson, pastor of the First Baptist church conducted the funeral services and the choir of the First Baptist church sang several impressive hymns.

    The order of the Eastern Star conducted the funeral services according to their solemn rites at the Eastern Star home at Arlington at 4 o'clock Sunday afternoon where the deceased passed away.

    Active pallbearers, long time friends of the family, were Sam J. Massie, Clarence Hill, Walter B. Wilson, Glen Massie, R. H. Brooks of Dallas, and another Mr. Brooks of Dallas.
