THE WESTERN STAR, 6 April 1917
Obituary of STELLA SMITH
MRS. JAY SMITH

The people of Wilmore and vicinity were shocked on last Friday morning to learn of the death, during the previous night, of Mrs. Jay Smith at the Smith home near that city. She had been a sufferer for over three
weeks from inflammatory rheumatism, but was thought on Thursday to be much better. Hence the fatal attack Thursday night was a surprise to all.

Deceased before her marriage last December to Jay Smith was Miss Stella Testerman. She had lived in Wilmore, but her home was in Tennessee. She was a sister of J. T. Testerman of Wilmore. During her stay in that city she had won a host of friends. Her untimely death caused a keen sense of sadness to pervade the entire community. Funeral services were conducted
from the Baptist church in Wilmore on Wednesday afternoon of this week, the pastor, Rev. J. Bert Smith, being in charge. The sincere sympathy of all goes out to the bereaved husband in this hour of his sad bereavement.
