Mrs. Carl had been a member of the First United Brethren congregation for the past seventy-four years, a member of the Friendly Bible class of the church Sunday school, the Ladies’ aid and the church Christian Endeavor society, never missing a meeting of the society until her health made attendance impossible recently.
