      The death angel has visited our little village and taken from our midst one of our best beloved citizens, Mrs. J. T. Roberts, who died April 14th. Her husband and seven children survive her, viz: Mrs. W. C. Wallace of Liano; Frank Roberts; Mrs. Sydney Smith, Mrs. C. M. Chapman of San Antonio; Mrs. Maude Jones, San Marcos; Mrs. Kathryn Henrich, Austin and Mrs. McCrow of Dripping Springs, all of whom attended the funeral.

      Mrs. Roberts was 82 years of age, having spent 64 years with her husband. She had been an invalid for several years. She bore her affliction so patiently, so uncomplainingly and retained her mental faculties to the end. She took much interest in public affairs, reading and discussing current events until three days before she died. She lived in this vicinity over 50 years, and not once during that time did she ever fail to respond liberally to any enterprise that was to the betterment of the community in which she lived. At the time of her death, altho a shut in, she was a member of "The Woman's Earnest Working Club" which was organized over a year ago for the betterment of the schools, also a great worker for the Red Cross. Aitho a shut in, we did not have a more interested member. Her life was spent in working for others. She was a devoted wife and mother and a true, loyal firend. She had often expressed the wish to the writer that she might pass away before becoming helpless and that wish was granted, she walked to her bed a few minutes before she died and said to her daughter, "Lay me down, I want to rest", and passed out so peacefully.

      Her funeral was one of the largest that has ever been in Dripping Springs. San Antonio, San Marcos, Austin and surrounding villages were represented and the numerous and beautiful floral offerings showed the high esteem in which the deceased was held.
