Obituary

Stockbridge
The Late Charles A. Neff

The community was saddened Wednesday evening, Nov. 18, when news came of the sudden death from heart failure of Charles A. Neff, for many years a resident of this town. His was a life full of kindly acts, cheering words and devotion to the loved ones in his household. He was a thoughtful and kind husband and father, wisely caring for his children. When we think what he did for them, it is not strange that their hearts are filled with sorrow when they came to the home and they know they will see him no more. He was also very dear to all his grandchildren, and they were very dear to him. When they visited him he knew how to touch a child's heart, for he had a child's spirit within him. So this father was a light to their path and his memory is sweet.

Mr. Neff left a wife, Nancy (Davis) Neff; three children, Mrs. Walter Mills, Fred and Carl Neff, all of Stockbridge, to mourn his loss.

The funeral was held Friday at his later home, Rev. Mr. Barnes officiating. Interment was at Bethel.
