WOMACK, Elizabeth Jane GAMBLE - Mrs. Elizabeth Jane Womack, nee Gamble, was born near Centerton June 3, 1850. Was married to J.W. Womack February 10, 1868. Of this union were born nine children. Luther died in infancy 26 years ago. The other eight are Mrs. F.M. Marr of Gravette; Mrs. Robert Lee of Southwest City, Mo.; Mrs. Hugh Good of Centerton and Miss Stella, who is at home but who graduated from Scarrett Bible Training school a few years ago. Was ordained a deaconess and served the church in that capacity until her health broke down. The four boys are Prof. J.P. Womack, superintendent of the school at Conway, Ark.; Prof. R.E. Womack, who has the chair of history in the Arkansas state normal at Conway, Ark.; Rev. John A. Womack, who is pastor of the M.E. church, south at Russellville, Ark.; Rev. W.V. Womack, who is pastor of the M.E. church, south at Deason Avenue, Fort Smith, Ark. Sister Womack was converted in 1866 and joined the Cumberland Presbyterian church. United with the Methodist church at Centerton in 1892. She died April 29, 1915 at her home at Centerton. When she took sick she was conscious that her days were numbered. With perfect composure she arranged every detail for her funeral - selected her pallbearers, her four sons and four grandsons, and a song to be sung by her children. Also a select poem to be read by her eldest son. She selected the preachers who were to officiate and requested that the service be a service of triumph like the closing of a revival meeting. Brother Gilmore of Gravette was to make the talk and Brother J.A. Fair of Centerton and Rev. Peter Carnahan of Bentonville were to have a part in the services. The funeral was largely attended and the services were inspiring. Sister Womack fought a good fight and kept the faith and has gone to wear the crown of righteousness. Y.A. Gilmore.
