Coorpender was 74 years old and was born at Mt. Pleasant, Tenn. She married the late Dick Coorpender and three children survive them, Mrs. Annie and Carrie Young and June Coorpender.
Andrew Herron was born in Seguin forty years ago. He married Miss Ella La Grange of Wilson County, who with three children survive him.
Words cannot express the deep sympathy, caused by this double crown of sorrow, with the loved ones they leave behind."
