CUTHBERTSON — Sister M. C. Cuthbertson was born Minnie Myrtle Welsh December 4, 1890 in McKinney, Texas. She was reared in Collin County, Texas. On April 24, 1912 she married M. C. Cuthbertson, and was baptized into Christ by him in the summer of the same year. At the time of her passing she was a member of the North Country Club Road Church of Christ, Tucson, Arizona, where Brother Cuthbertson for the second period of time is the regular preacher. Sister Cuthbertson was ready to return to Tucson following a ten day visit with her daughter, who had undergone surgery, in Amarillo, Texas, when she suffered a brain hemorrhage. She regained consciousness and was able to talk to members of the family until following surgery the second time she lapsed into a coma and departed this life Wednesday evening, February 20, 1957. She is survived by her husband, two daughters, Mrs. Evelyn Rowley, Dallas, Texas; Mrs. Marian Zuber, Amarillo, Texas; one son, Harry C. Cuthbertson, Los Angeles, California; two brothers, John Welsh, Sherman, Texas; Bill Welsh, Oregon; two sisters, Mrs. Grace Lafon, McKinney, Texas; Mrs. Kate Brazeal, Dallas, Texas; and by two grandchildren, Randy and Kaye Zuber, Amarillo, Texas. Sister Cuthbertson worked faithfully with her husband in his labors as a gospel preacher. They had lived and labored with various congregations, especially in the west and southwest, and wherever they lived they made a host of friends and were loved because of their supreme interest in the church, their Christian character, and their diligent work. Sister Cuthbertson was of a meek and quiet spirit, hospitable and gracious, and devoted to the church, her husband, and to the other members of her family. Brother A. C. Hon and the writer conducted the funeral rites from the Griggs Pioneer Chapel and interment was in Llano Cemetery, February 22, 1957, Amarillo, Texas. "The sting of death is sin; and the power of sin is the law: but thanks he to God, who giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." — Luther G. Roberts, Amarillo, Texas.

W. E. (Bud) Irvine, Earth, Texas, Feb. 23: "Last year I was in engaged in meetings in Lebanon and Cottage Cottage Grove, Oregon; Estancia, New Mexico, and Cross Plains, Texas. Thus far this year I have held meetings in Sweet Home, Cottage Grove and Dallas, Oregon, and I'm to be in Estancia, New Mexico in April. We plan to be in California the latter part of May. My father, Wm. S. Irvine of Bellflower, California, is quite ill and unable to continue his preaching work for a time. The extent of his illness has not yet been determined. We ask for prayers in his behalf. We are in our third year of work with Earth, and we look forward to future pleasant labors with these brethren. We continue to support Brother Wilburn in Lebanon, Oregon, and we hold several 'mission' meetings during the year. Brother Foster Ramsey just closed a good meeting with us."
