Nancy Jane Inman

The sudden and unexpected death of Mrs. Samuel Inman has cast a veil of sorrow over the whole of Atlanta’s social life.  To her many relatives and intimate friends here of course her loss is greatest, but none who knew her are without sincere sorrow for her loss and for the grief that is now so great in the hearts of those nearest to her.  Her gentile, noble character, her sweet womanliness and grace will make her forever remembered by all who knew her.  The beauty of her life as a wife as fair as the crown that now makes her immortal.
