Greenwood Cemetery
Cleveland County,

Birth: Jul. 3, 1925
Death: Dec. 2, 1927

Francis Anne Thomasson, aged two years and five months, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. V.O. Thomasson, died Friday morning at her home here after an illness of only two days. Her illness was not considered dangerous until the night preceeding her death, after which time medical aid was of no avail.
She is survived by her parents and grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. J.S. Sadler of the place and Mr. and Mrs. J.L.C. Thomasson of Warren.
Funeral services were conducted from the home of Mr. and Mrs. Sadler Saturday afternoon, conducted by the Rev. Harold D. Sadler, assisted by the Revs H.W. Jean, Geo. F. Moody and J.D. Sayres. Burial was made in Greenwood cemetery.
Little Anne was one of the most beloved children of this community, with a bright and smiling little personality that won a place in the heart of everyone with whom she came in contact. As one man said of her "She had unusually small hands, but took an unusually large bit of my heart and love everytime I saw her."
One of the largest crowds ever assembled at a funeral in Rison followed the little form to the cemetery with a great bank of floral wreaths in loving memory of their short little life and to offer their sympathy to the bereaved parents and other relatives.
