Mrs. T. R. Risher

On Friday night, November 2, Mrs. T.R. Risher of Providence passed away.  Mrs. Risher had been an invalid for almost 12 years, having suffered a stroke of apoplexy over eleven years ago.

 She was Miss Alice Powell (should be Rowell) before her marriage and early in life became a member of the Providence Methodist church of which church she remained a faithful member until the end.

 Mrs. Risher will be remembered as a consecrated Christian, faithful wife and a loving mother and will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

 She was fifty-nine years of age and is survived by her husband, T.R. Risher, and one sister, Mrs. G.L. Smoak of Round, and the following children:  Mrs. B.R. Kelly of Los Angeles, Cal; Mr. T.R. Risher, Jr.; Mrs. A.W. Daniels, Mrs. D.D. Sams of Charleston, Mrs. O.B. & Winnifred Risher of Round, Mrs. M.B. Garris of Miami, Fla. And ten grandchildren and one great grandchild.

 She was funeralized and interred at the Providence Cemetery at four o’clock Saturday afternoon by Rev. Murray of the Walterboro Methodist Church.

 The many beautiful flowers on her grave bore mute evidence of the high esteem which she was held by her many friends.

 My notes:  Mrs. T.R. Risher is Mrs. Thomas Raysor Risher, nee Alice Rowell, raised by James Raysor & Catharine Rowell Stokes.
