Mrs. Nancy Catherine Sistrunk passed away at the home of her son, E. C. (Ernest Conrad) Sistrunk, in Atlanta, on Monday, January 7.
Funeral services were held at Trinity Methodist church in Durand at 2 o'clock, January 9, with her pastor, The Rev. W. A. Pilgrim officiating The choir rendered "Abide With Me" and "My Faith Looks Up To Thee," and Rev. Pilgrim read the Shepard Psalm. He paid a beautiful tribute to the deceased's life of cheerfulness and kindliness to those in the community with whom she came in contact, and to her worthy Christian character.
With exception of a few years spent in Gainsville, her entire life has been spent in the County Line and Durand community. She was much given to hospitality and her home was open to those seeking comfort and cheer.
Her husband, G. W. Sistrunk, preceeded her to the grave several years ago. Her family consisted of three children: Mrs. R. L. Mitcham (Minnie Florence Sistrunk), of Durand, Mrs. S. W. Hasty (Susan Sistrunk), of Dunwoody, and E. C. (Ernest Conrad) of Atlanta, also several grandchildren and great grandchildren. Interment was in the family lot at Trinity cemetery.
