KILLED IN AN AUTO WRECK

A. R. Tippett of Corsicana Pinned Beneath Big Automobile

About 9:30 last night Mr. A. R. Tippett met death in an auto accident on the big dump on the Ennis and Emhouse road, between Chambers and Waxahachie creeks and on the Ellis County side of the road.

Mr. Tippett had been to the West Texas oil fields for several days and was on his way home. After reaching Dallas yesterday afternoon, Mr. Tippett met with Mr. Calloway, a friend who was coming to Corsicana in his Hudson super six automobile, and accompanied by another man whose name the reporter could not learn, the three started to Corsicana.

About 9:30 last night they reached the big dump and drove upon it, but hadn’t gone far when Mr. Calloway found that there was a big wash out in the dump and that they could not go further. Mr. Calloway got out of the car and after examining the ground decided to turn around and go back to Ennis. As they were trying to back the car to turn round, Mr. Calloway and the third occupant of the car felt that the dump was caving at the rear end of the car and they both jumped out on the opposite side and called to Mr. Tippett to jump out, but he was on the side of the car in the rear seat that was going down and had no time to jump and the car rolled down the dump that is many feet high and the unfortunate man was caught under the car with the machine across his chest.

The news of the unfortunate accident reached Mrs. Tippett by telephone from Ennis near 1 o’clock this morning and she at once telephoned Mr. J. A. Thompson, and he came to town and reached the interurban station soon after the last car came in and got the dispatcher to let that car run back to Ennis and Mr. Thompson boarded it for Ennis.

When Mr. Thompson reached Ennis he found Mr. Calloway at the undertaking parlor with the body and he gave Mr. Thompson the details of the accident. Mr. Calloway told Mr. Thompson that when the car reached the bottom of the dump and landed across the chest of Mr. Tippett he uttered one groan, and when he and the other man with him went down the dump to see if they could get him out he was dead when they reached him. They went a mile of more to a camp of levee workers and got members of the crew to go with them and carry along their jack screws to get the car off the body. This done the undertaker at Ennis was phoned for and a hearse was sent out and the body taken to Ennis and prepared for burial.

Mr. Thompson remained with the body and accompanied the remains home this morning reaching here at 8:45.

The deceased had been a resident of Navarro County for a number of years. For several years he taught school in this county and for some time was cashier of the bank at Powell. Near five years ago he came to Corsicana and has engaged in the real estate business. He was a quiet, educated and polished gentleman, for whom all who knew him had the highest respect and those who were near to him in business and in social life, and knew his real worth as a man and as a friend, trusted and loved him, and no death has occurred here recently that has caused more profound sorrow.

The deceased was forty-four years of age, and was reared in Greenville, Texas. He first came to Corsicana as a teacher in the Corsicana High School. Surviving the deceased is his widow and two little daughters, his parents, who are now living in Dallas and a number of brother and sisters.

The funeral will take place from the family home, 1423 West Fourth Avenue at 10 o’clock tomorrow morning. The services at the home will be conducted by Rev. J. S. Taylor, after which the Masons will take charge and conclude the services at the grave.

The following pall bearers have been named: Active, G. G. Owen, J. S. Eubank, O. L. Albritton, Dexter Hamilton, W. F. Tolleson, A. Hanks. Honorary, J. A. Thompson, C. E. Upchurch, R. D.

Resident Corsicana For Many Years Died At Home on Sunday

Mrs. Mary Howard, 82, a resident of Corsicana for nearly forty years, passed away Sunday morning about 9 o’clock at the residence of her son, Joe Howard, 504 East Tenth avenue. Surviving are one son, Joe Howard; two daughters, Mrs. Mattie Landgridge and Mrs. Mandy Morris, all of Corsicana; and a granddaughter, Mrs. Minnie Cooper of Kilgore.

Funeral services were conducted at the residence of her son, by Rev. A. O. Burgess, pastor of the Nazarene church at 10:30 a. m. Monday.

Though not confined to her bed, hers was the baptism of suffering a number of years, and intensely so for several months. Yet she bore it with great patience and with little murmuring. It is such a pleasure to note the beautiful traits of a noble soul. We can throw our hearts open without reserve and pluck from the English language, the loveliest adjectives in its great store. She has raised her family so much like the pattern given in the 31st chapter of proverbs, that her children truly rise up to call her blessed.

We can gladly state that she was not penniless by the providence of God, but praise His name she was enemyless. Rich and universal, was the praise of friends and neighbors. Yes, and there lurks not a doubt in our hearts that the merciful and loving God will some day demonstrate before us the glory of her beautiful life.

I am proud to embrace this privilege to join in the prayerful benediction that those of us whose lives have been touched by the sainted life of this our mother and sister in the Lord, may be inspired to double our diligence to make our peace calling, and elections sure, to be reunited with her in the kingdom our Heavenly Father.

A devoted friend,
W. F. Sanders.

In Memoriam.

In loving memory of our dear pastor, Rev. L. C. Howell, who died Sept. 22, 1925.

He was born in Amity Arkansas, Aug. 31, 1872. He leaves a wife and ten children, many other relatives and friends to mourn his loss, but our loss is heaven’s gain. At an early age he felt the call of the ministry and he attended school in Jacksonville college for seven years. Along with him in school was his daughter Carrie, and later his son Jewel. A man like that can be depended on any time and anywhere. Such was known of Bro Howell. His ministry soon spread over Eastern Texas and over all portions of the state and soon he moved to Central Texas where he served until his death. I don’t think I have ever known a more noble man or one so full of the knowledge of God. He preached Christ only and him crucified. He was serving the Eleventh Avenue Baptist church in his tenth year. Practically it has known no other pastor in its History. He has united a lot of us in marriage and has buried untold numbers in baptism. He has been a father to the fatherless, a comforter in the hour of sadness. I’m sorry we let a man of God exist in our town on so little of this life’s needs. May the scene of his death be instruments to us to do the things God would have us to do. And for God’s sake may we see that his widowed wife is provided for. Funeral services were held at the Eleventh Avenue Baptist Church and burial took place in Oakwood Cemetery. The Klansmen took charge of the services at the grave. I don’t’ think I have ever looked upon a more beautiful scene than that as they marched all robed in white, placed his suit on his coffin and the U. S. flag in motion marched quietly away. They made it very plain that he loved the Klan and dearly would have given his life for it rather than to see the work of our Master trodden down. We believe that it is the Lord’s work, and, that the God of all truth leads them as he did our dearly beloved brother who is dead and gone. To his beloved family we would ask God’s blessings on you, restore and keep you is our prayer. Follow the footsteps of Father, and it won’t be long until we’ll meet you over yonder in that glorious, happy home where no sickness, sorrow nor death can ever come and where we shall all be as one. Weep not, dear ones, but turn your tear-dimmed eyes to an all-seeing God and ask him to lead you in the paths of righteousness.

Death has claimed our loved one,
Claimed our pastor dear.
Sad and lonely is his home
For he is not here.

Oh that dear one, how we loved him,
Oh how hard to give him up;
But an angel came down for him
And removed him from our home.

Yes, he has left us—
Left us broken-hearted,
Again we hope to meet him
And never more be parted.

Our cries can’t bring him back;
No, he has gone to stay
Where Jesus ever reigns,
And there is everlasting day.

Some day we will meet you, Bro. Howell.
The time will not be long
Until we will be united
In the land of joy and song.

Written by One Who loved him.

Randy Lee Green
Nov 5, 1954 - Jan 31, 2006

Randy Lee Green, 51, went to be with his Lord on Jan. 31, 2006. Randy was born in Vina, AL, on Nov. 5, 1954. He is preceded in death by his parents, Curtis Green Sr. and Belva Green. Randy is survived by his wife, Pam; three children, Matt Parrish and wife, Jade, Haley Green and Hunter Green; two grandchildren, Kealey and Kieran Parrish; one brother, Curtis Green Jr. of Adrian MI; one sister, Twila Phillips of Castlewood, VA, and a multitude of cousins, nieces and nephews.

Randy attended Michigan Christian College in Rochester, MI, and graduated from Harding University in Searcy, AK. He received his Masters in Mid-Management from Stephen F. Austin University in Nacogdoches.

Randy dedicated his entire career to teaching and coaching. Next to his love for his family, the ability to help young people through his teaching and coaching was what he loved best.

He was a big man with an even bigger, kinder heart. The love and affection shown for him by those whose lives he touched is a testament to Randy as a role model and inspiration. The positive difference he made in so many lives will go on forever.

A document written by Randy many years ago reflects how he lived his life. Here are his words:

“Are you accomplishing what you honestly feel God intends for you to accomplish with your life? One of our biggest problems in attaining our dreams is that we try to do it alone. There may be some things you can do alone, but there isn’t anything of importance you can do without God. He can make our plans greater and better than we can ever imagine. You ask ‘how do you know if it’s God’s will?’ I really can’t answer that, I only know the important thing is don’t sit and wait ... Even if the direction seems totally impractical, but ever so interesting, move toward it as if it were a possibility and let God though his intervention stop you if it’s not right. I wonder how many miracles a day we miss because we do not live in the now, but look back at the past or try to gaze into the future.”

Visitation will be Friday, Feb. 3, from 5 to 8 p.m. at Griffin-Roughton Funeral Home. Services will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 4., at the Corsicana High School Auditorium.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Memphis Tenn.

Arrangements by Griffin-Roughton Funeral Home.
