Mrs. Myrtie Bumpus, wife of Mr. R. C. Bumpus, and daughter of Mr. Oscar Mitchell, of Mason, died at her home in Memphis Friday morning at 1 o’clock, after a long illness. The remains were shipped to her former home at Mason on the afternoon of her death, where the interment took place in Cedar Hill cemetery, Rev. J. G. Johnston conducting the funeral services. The great collection of lovely flowers heaped on the grave attested the love and esteem in which the deceased was held. Mrs. Bumpus was 31 years of age, and is survived by her husband and one daughter, who have the sympathy of many friends in this county in their great bereavement. (The Covington Leader, Thursday, March 28, 1918)
