Hill, of
this city; Lester Pridgen, of Shrevesport, La.; and Coy Pridgen of
Tulsa, Okla.

All of their children have been notified of the death of their mother,
and the

here.

Mr. Carl Sellers of near Columbia is a brother of the deceased.

Mrs. Pridgen was about 59 years old and was reared in this county,
southeast of
