Sympathy Saturday - Ellie Runyon Chinn

From the Lexington Herald, Lexington, Kentucky, death, 15 January 1952, p8 c8.

Miss Ellie B. Chinn.

Funeral services for Miss Ellie Runyon Chinn, of 248 East Maxwell street, will be held at 10:30 a.m.  Wednesday at the W. R. Milward mortuary chapel. The Rev. Leslie R. Smith will officiate and burial will be in the Lexington Cemetery.

Miss Chinn died at 6:45 a.m. yesterday at Good Samaritan Hospital after an illness of two months. She was a retired schoolteacher.

A native of Lexington, Miss Chinn was the daughter of the late Addison B. and Frances Runyon Chinn. She was a graduate of Sayre College and a member of Central Christian Church.

She is survived by a brother, A. C. Chinn of Lexington.

{My regular readers might remember that Ellie's father, Addison Ball Chinn was murdered in a 1902 home invasion in Lexington, Kentucky, and was a subject of my Thriller Thursday theme. Her brother, Asa was also injured.}
