Journal February 4, 1909 Mrs E R
TENNENT, wife of Dr Gil--- TENNENT, died at the family residence, on Atlanta
street, on Monday afternoon last, after a brief illness. This occurrence carried sadness and
sorrow to hundreds of people and friends who knew this remarkably brilliant and
talented woman who possessed an intellect and culture of a high order. Gifted as a writer, she was the author
of that famous cook book, "Housekeeping in the Sunny South." Mrs TENNENT was formerly of Paris, Ky.,
and of a distinguished family. She
was kind-hearted, generous, noble impulses, and was always ready and eager to
be of service, or do others a kindness or favor. As a member of the Presbyterian church, she was loyal and
devoted. Besides her husband, Dr G
TENNENT, she is survived by one daughter, Mrs Virgil Odgen WARD, wife of
Captain D T WARD, of Franklinton, N. C.
We sympathize with the bereaved in the loss they have sustained. The funeral services were held
