Maryville Enterprise, (Blount Co. TN) Thursday, November 19, 1936:
"Obituary---In loving remembrance of our dear wife, mother and grandmother, Susan E. Long, who departed this life on November 4, 1936. Only a few days ago a home was hung with sadness and mourning and its hearts torn and bleeding because the Death Angel had called a loving wife, mother and grandmother to her Heavenly home. Now that she has gone from us, we have the sweet assurance that we can meet again in a home where there is no death, no sorrow and no pain; no tears to be shed, for all will be peace and happiness forever and ever. Weep not for her but prepare to meet her on that bright Heavenly shore where there is no sad parting. A chair is vacant in our home which never can be filled and a voice we loved is still. Oh, mother we loved you, but the Lord never makes a mistake; he doeth all things well.
