Mrs. Millie O. King, well known young women of Bartow, passed away at the home of her parents in this city on Wednesday at 12:40 p. m.

Mrs. King was born in Georgia, November 24; 1898. Moving to Bartow a number of years ago, she formed many endur­ing friendships which her passing leaves desolate.

The last illness was first contracted on New Year's Day. After remaining at home for ten days she felt sufficiently improved to return to Lakeland, where she was employed. On the following day, however, she again became ill and returned to her home. The seriousness of the case was realized and every ef­fort made to avert the fatal end­ing but to no avail.

Her parents, two brothers, Carl and Glen Owenby, and her baby daughter survive together with two uncles, V. G. and O. M. Kelley in Bartow and Lakeland respectively. All were summoned and were at the bedside as the well loved young life ebbed away.

Funeral services were held Thursday morning from the residence at ten o'clock. Rev. J. E. Martin of the First Baptist Church delivered the funeral sermon. T. E. Wirt was in charge of arrangements. Many friends of the deceased and her family were in attendance and the floral offering was large and very beautiful. Interment was made at Wildwood Cemetery.

Pallbearers serving were J. B. Pylant, Jr., Geo. R. Pylant, V. D. Marquis, F. L. Finney, Roy Hughes and Harold Burright - ­ Bartow Record.
