Died, at the Hoffman Hospital, Thursday, November 21st, 1912, Miss Frances Batten Sayre, youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Marshall Sayre. Frank, as she was familiarly known, was perhaps one of the most popular young women in this section, being of a bright and cheerful disposition, always had a pleasant word for those she met, loyal to her friends, and they were many, and charitable towards those who spoke ill of her. As one who frequently visited their home, we always found them to be a loving and devoted family, and we are sure there is no one who will be missed more than Frank. The bereaved family have the deepest sympathy of the entire community. Besides the father and mother she leaves one sister, Miss Hallie Sayre. The funeral took place at three o'clock, on Saturday, from her late residence on Mineral St.
