      Mrs. Tom E. Rich, Sr., 84, member of a prominent Decatur County family, and who lived all her life in the county, died suddenly in her home last Saturday evening.

      Services were conducted by Dr. James T. Burrell, Pastor of the First Baptist Church, the Reverend Joe H. Bridges, Pastor of the First Methodist Church, and Dr. Charles Bishop, Pastor of Calvary Baptist Church.

      Graveside services were conducted at Oak City Cemetery, and Dr. Burrell and Dr. B. Frank Cochran officiated.

      Mrs. Rich was born in Climax on April 24, 1883, and was a member of a large and prominent Decatur County family. She was the former Miss Rosa Arline, and was married to the late Tom E. Rich, the youngest son of Elijah Andrew Jackson Rich, a pioneer of this county, in 1905. Mr. Rich passed away on December 9, 1965.

      The deceased had made her home in Bainbridge for 55 years, and was an active and devoted member of the Baptist Church here. She was a member of the T. E. L.
