Obituary of William E. Mix (1915 - 1985)

This obituary is from my grandmother's collection of family newspaper clippings. The original newspaper info has been lost due to trimming, and it was pasted onto a blank sheet of paper.

William E. MIX was an older brother of my grandmother. He was 5 years older than her, and was the 6th of 10 children born to William Homer MIX and Cornelia Elizabeth AKINS.

The handwritten time is in my grandmother's handwriting. I am assuming that was the time of day her brother passed away.

***Update on 28-Nov-2010 to add text of clipping:
