OBITUARY Miss Clara McKnight, 1365 Gwirmett Street, Passed into eternal rest Thursday, November 6, 1975, at Marioni Convalescent Home. She was the daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Andrew McKnight. At an early age she was converted and baptized by the late Rev, L^P. Pinckney at the Thankful Baptist Church, where she served faith fully until death. She is survived by Cousins - Wilson Reid, James Reid of Augusta, Mrs, Anna Platts of Fair fax, S.C., Mrs. Mat tie Doctor, Hamlet, N.C., Mrs, Amelia Albright, Waterboro, S.C.; Dear Friends, Mrs. Lillie M 0 Burney, Dea. Joseph Mitchell, Mrs. Lucille Bussey and Mrs. Lottie Dicks, all of Augusta; other relatives and sorrowing friends.
Why do we mourn departed friends Or shake at deaths alarm Tis but the voice that Jesus sends, To call them to his arms.
She went her way, but on she trod The path that led her straight to God. Such lives as this put death to scorn They lose our day, to find Gods morn. Lord, help us so to live That, when death waiting stands, In child-like faith and trust well give Our souls into His hands.
"God is our refuge and strength, a very pre sent help in trouble". (Psalm /*6:1)

A TRIBUTE TO OUR MISS CLARA
We knew her as Miss Clara With affection we recall She did so much for us And was loved by one and all. She was always willing to do Anything we asked her to No matter if it was night or day She came to us with out delay.
We shall always remember The happy days weve known, We are going to miss her Now that she is gone. Her loving smile and gentle face No one can ever take her place. We loved her dearly with all our heart, May she rest in peace We regret, we have to part.
