Mary Smith Haynie obituary - Alcorn County, Mississippi

15 Dec 1891 - 27 Feb 1937

(submitted by Jerry Grisham)

Twenty four hours after her husband succumbed to an attack of lobar pneumonia, the same dread disease brought near death this morning to Mrs. Mary Smith Haynie of near Glendale.

Mrs. Haynie, critically ill when her husband's death occurred at 8:00 Friday morning, never rallied. She died at 8:10 this morning without having been informed of her husband's death.

Both were suffering pneumonia, having contracted the disease at about the same time and were under care of a physician and relatives at their home six miles southeast of Glendale.

Mr. Haynie, 50 years of age, is a well known farmer in that neighborhood. His wife was 45 years of age.

Double funeral services for Mr. and Mrs. Hanie will be held Monday at Malone's graveyard, two miles south of Glendale.

Louise Haynie, age 23 and Millard Hanie, age 18, their children and a number of other relatives survive them.

It is learned this morning that Millard Haynie, 18 year old son of Mr. and Mrs. John Hanie, is also stricken with pneumonia and is in a dangerous condition.
