Mrs. A. W. George
Mrs. A. W. George died this morning at 6:30 o’clock at the home of her father, Mr. J. C. Lippard, on Spring Street, after a lingering illness.

Mrs. George had been in declining health for more than a year and about eight weeks ago she went to St. Leo’s Hospital in Greensboro for treatment. Her condition was serious then and heroic efforts were made to save her life. Her brother, Mr. Crooks Lippard, went to Greensboro and submitted to an operation, transfusing his blood into his sister’s body. For a time after the operation her condition improved and she came here about three weeks ago to visit her father. Soon after her arrival, however, her condition grew worse and continued so until her death.

Mrs. George was reared in this city, and before her marriage she was Miss Fannie Lippard, daughter of Mr. and Mrs J. C. Lippard. She was married July 1, 1906, to Mr. A. W. George and they have been living at Elkin for some time. Mr. George has been here for some time, and was at her bedside when the death summons came. Mrs. George was 36 years of age and since her childhood had been a member of the Reformed church, where the funeral will be held tomorrow afternoon at 3 o’clock, and will be conducted by the pastor, Rev. W. H. Causey.
