Turner commission firm, and four children, Virda, Etta, Willie and Tora. “Mr. and Mrs. Pitts had made Portsmouth their home for the past seventeen years. She was a faithful member of the School Land Hollow Christian church, near New Boston (Ohio), and will be buried Friday in the cemetery there.” Funeral services were held in the New Boston Christian church.

The bereaved relatives have the consolation of knowing they have the sympathy of all and that she died sure of eternal salvation.” Source: obituary, The Portsmouth Daily Times, Ohio, 22 July 1915, Page 7.
