DEATH OF MRS. NORVEL.
Mrs. Jos. Norvel, a former well known resident of Macoupin county, died at her home in Springfield this morning. Mrs. Norvel was formerly Miss Lizzie England.
The remains will be brought to Girard next Sunday morning and conveyed to the England cemetery west of Girard for interment.
Mrs. J. W. Norvell, of whose illness we made mention in former letters, died Friday morning Jan. 12, 1900, at their home in Springfield, aged 45 years, 10 months and 28 days. She was the youngest daughter of Uncle Joe England. She was married to J. W. Norvell, Oct. 3, 1878. Of this union two daughters were born, who with the husband survive her. She professed a hope in Christ in 1877. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. R. J. Watts, Sunday morning, Jan. 14, from Union Chapel, after which the remains were laid to rest in the new addition. We believe the attendance was the largest we ever saw on a funeral occasion at this place. Beautiful floral tributes were placed on the grave by sorrowing friends. Deceased leaves behind, a husband, two daughters, her aged father and six brothers to mourn the loss of a loving companion, a kind mother and daughter and sister, who was always possessed of a sunny disposition. We extend to the bereaved ones our sympathy in this their great loss, J. J. G.
