Native Trigg Lady Dies In Calloway
Daughter of Former Trigg Countian Passes Away AT Dexter
A writer from Dexter, Calloway county to the Hardin Enterprise of recent day says:
The death angel visited the home of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Hargis this morning at an early hours, and claimed Mrs. Myrtleen Coleman Darnell, daughter of Mrs. Morris Hargis and the late William Coleman, of Trigg county. Mrs. Darnell was born May 3, 1909, in Trigg county. At the age of eleven years she professed faith in Christ, uniting with the Baptist church at Kirksey. November 11, 1923, she married Mr. Darnell and resided at Paducah until this year in November, when she came here to be with her mother during her illness which was expected from child birth. Complications set in which caused her sudden death, which was a shock to her parent, relatives and scores of friends as well as girl chums. She was a true and devoted Christian and lived in high esteem of her associates both in Kirksey and Trigg county. It is sad to give up so young a matron and mother, but God's will not ours, She leaves her young husband and baby son, her mother, step-father and sisters and brothers to miss her and mourn her loss. Mr. and Mrs. Hargis recently moved here to our town and have the sympathy of a score of new neighbors and friends.
