Troy Free Press, Lincoln County, Missouri, February 21, 1941
Miss Cynthia Woolfolk
Cynthia BRAGG WOOLFOLK, youngest of the four daughters of Shapleigh Ross and Susan B. WOOLFOLK, was born May 23, 1864 and died Feb. 13, 1941, at the age of 76 years.
Born and reared in Troy, she was educated in Parker Seminary, a school conducted in the Presbyterian Church.
A sister to the late Miss Mary B. WOOLFOLK, Mrs. F. M. HOWELL, Miss Carrie Lee WOOLFOLK, and Dr. E. B. WOOLFOLK, Miss Cynthia spent her entire life in Troy, except for considerable time spent with relatives in Virginia in her youth.
She became a member of the Troy Presbyterian Church in 1884, and was active in all of its departments until ill health confined her to her home.
Following the death of her sister, Miss Mary, who with herself and a nephew, John WOOLFOLK, had lived in the friendly old brick home, after the other members of the family had passed on, the old home was replaced by a modern bungalow by the nephew, John WOOLFOLK, who with his family, gave Miss Cynthia such devoted attention to the end.
Although of a retiring disposition, Miss "Tinnie" as she was familiarly known, had a keen sense of humor, an abiding faith, and an alert mind, always maintaining an active interest in her church, the community and world affairs.
She was so appreciative of those friends who visited her during her declining years, and those who maintained their friendly interest were enriched and inspired by the association.
The last of her immediate family, she is survived by two nieces, Mrs. W. A. COTTLE, of St. Charles and Miss Isabel HOWELL of Troy; and five nephews, Shapleigh W. HOWELL of Argonne, South Dakota; Ernest WOOLFOLK, Moscow Mills; Shapleigh R. WOOLFOLK, Bowling Green; John and William WOOLFOLK of Troy.
Funeral services were held at the Troy Presbyterian Church, Friday afternoon, conducted by her pastor, Rev. T. A FRANKLIN, and burial was in the Troy City Cemetery.
